I am hooked on Spiralized Veggies! I first tried the squash, which I bought from - our produce and garden store; then I went back and got some carrots and sweet potatoes. I haven't made anything with the sweet potatoes yet. But love these healthy & delicious veggies. The Ro-tel tomatoes & green chilies give it a nice kick and makes a yummy dish. My friend tried this & bought herself a spiralizer. She & her husband loved them as much as I do. I'd rather buy them already spiralized, so I don't have to spend the money on a spiralizer -and it is quicker just to pick them up & quickly saute them

How To Make

  • 1
    Heat the Olive oil in a 10 - 12 inch saute pan
  • 2
    Add the onions and saute about 2 minutes.
  • 3
    Add the squash carrots and saute for about 8-10 additional minutes.
  • 4
    Mix the vegetables well; and saute until crisp tender.
  • 5
    When done; but not wilted; and are still a little crisp; add the can of Ro-tel tomatoes with green chilies.I use the Original. This gives it a little kick. If you want a little more "heat," you can use a can with the hotter green chilies.

    NOTE: You can half or double the recipe. This makes a great side dish, along with other vegetables or your choice of meat. I had it with fresh corn on the cob and sliced tomatoes (fresh from Florida). Yum!!
