    From the Test Kitchen

    To contrast the sweet flavors of our spaghetti squash—a special variety whose flesh transforms into delicate, spaghetti-like strands when cooked—we're tossing it with spicy chipotle-glazed beef, poblano, and onion, then baking it all under a layer of melty cheese.

    tips & techniques
    Prepare & cook the squash
    1 Prepare & cook the squash

    Place an oven rack in the center of the oven; preheat to 450°F. Wash and dry the fresh produce. Using a sharp, sturdy knife, carefully halve the squash lengthwise. Using a spoon, scoop out and discard the pulp and seeds. Drizzle the cut sides with olive oil; season with salt and pepper.

    Microwave or oven: 
    MICROWAVE: Working in two batches if necessary, transfer the prepared squash to a microwave-safe baking dish, cut side down. Fill with 1/2 inch of water. Microwave on high 3 to 5 minutes, or until the flesh easily pulls away from the skin.  
    OVEN: Line a sheet pan with parchment paper (or foil). Transfer the prepared squash to the sheet pan, cut side down. Roast 25 to 30 minutes, or until the skin is lightly browned and the flesh easily pulls away from the skin.

    Transfer the cooked squash to a large bowl to cool slightly.

    Meanwhile, halve, peel, and thinly slice the onion. Thinly slice the scallions, separating the white bottoms and hollow green tops. Grate the cheese on the large side of a box grater. Cut off and discard the stem of the poblano pepper. Halve lengthwise; remove the ribs and seeds, then thinly slice crosswise. Finely chop the jalapeño pepper. Thoroughly wash your hands immediately after handling the peppers. In a bowl, combine the sour cream, 1 tablespoon of water, and as much of the chopped jalapeño pepper as you’d like, depending on how spicy you’d like the dish to be. Season with salt and pepper.

    3 Cook the vegetables

    In a large pan (nonstick, if you have one), heat 2 teaspoons of olive oil on medium-high until hot. Add the sliced onion and sliced poblano pepper; season with salt and pepper. Cook, stirring occasionally, 3 to 4 minutes, or until lightly browned.

    Add the patties
    4 Add the patties

    To the pan of cooked vegetables, add the sliced white bottoms of the scallions and patties; season with salt and pepper. Cook, stirring frequently and breaking the patties apart with a spoon, 4 to 6 minutes, or until lightly browned. Add as much of the chile paste as you'd like, depending on how spicy you'd like the dish to be; season with salt and pepper. Cook, stirring constantly, 1 to 2 minutes, or until thoroughly combined and the Beyond Burger™ is cooked through. Turn off the heat. Taste, then season with salt and pepper if desired.
