Garlic Squash Tacos with Maple Mayo

Taco Tuesday!!! My favourite day of the week of course. I had a squash sitting around and wasn’t sure what to do with it! Tacos of course is always the best idea. This recipe is definitely not traditional Mexican taco style, but it’s amazing and I love every type of taco so why not!

  • 1 tbsp maple syrup 
  • 4 taco shells
  • Garnish: lettuce, tomato, cheese
