  1. Preheat your oven to 375F degrees, and oil a sheet pan.
  2. Toss the squash with 1 Tbsp oil and spread out on the prepared pan.  Sprinkle with half of the sea salt. Place in the oven and roast until tender and starting to brown, about 45 minutes.  Remove from the oven.
  3. Meanwhile, heat 2 tsp olive in a pan, and add the onion and jalapenos.  Sautee until softened, about 5 minutes, then add the beans, sea salt, chilies, garlic and cumin, and cook until it is all heated through, stir in the cilantro and lime juice.  Mix in the squash.
  4. Spoon the bean and squash mixture into your 6 taco shells, top with a little avocado.  Serve!
