Chipotle-Glazed Squash

This was AWESOME!  This recipe comes from 20 something cupcakes, it is genius!  Until this year I never really ate squash.  Well, I am converted!  Squash is delicious.  This was sweet and spicy.  I was in heaven.

The combination of flavors was Cookie + Kate’s idea.  She added the beans and rice to the meal.  Really, I can’t ask for much more.  I posted my take on the beans and rice here.

We tried two different types of squash, my friend gave me a mini squash lesson, and I still can’t remember what type of squashes they were.  I will update this as soon as I ask her.  The squash we used was buttercup and carnival.  I preferred the buttercup and my friend preferred the carnival.

Try this meal and then tell me how you like it!  Cuz I think you will love it!

1. Heat the oven to 300 degrees F. Grease a large rimmed baking sheet or roasting pan with oil.

  1. We used buttercup and carnival squash I was looking for delicata but couldn’t find it so I bought the carnival squash. You liked the buttercup squash better.
