    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 turkey, poblano, and onion, then baking it all under a layer of melty cheese.

    tips & techniques
    Prepare & roast the squash
    1 Prepare & roast 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, cut off the top and bottom of the squash to create a flat surface; turn the squash upright. Starting at the top, slice downward to halve the squash lengthwise. Using a spoon, scoop out and discard the pulp and seeds. Drizzle the cut sides with olive oil and season with salt and pepper. Line a sheet pan with foil. Transfer the prepared squash to the foil, 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 roasted squash to a large bowl to cool slightly.

    2 Prepare the remaining ingredients

    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.

    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.

    To the pan of cooked vegetables, add the chorizo and sliced white bottoms of the scallions. Cook, stirring frequently and breaking the meat apart with a spoon, 5 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, 2 to 3 minutes, or until thoroughly combined and the chorizo is cooked through. Turn off the heat. Taste, then season with salt and pepper if desired.
