chili roasted butternut squash

Planning a taco night? Add a surprising element of spicy-sweet to ANY taco with this chili-roasted butternut squash!

This recipe works best with butternut, because its shape makes it easy to cut into uniform cubes. Other squash varieties will work as well, with a bit more effort. Squash prepared this way makes a great addition to tacos or burritos!


Chili-roasted Butternut Squash


  • 1 butternut squash, peeled and cut into ¾” cubes
  • 2 tsp. chili powder
  • ½ tsp. cumin
  • 2 Tbs. olive oil
  • ¼ tsp. garlic powder
  • ¼ tsp. salt


  1. Preheat oven to 375⁰. Combine all ingredients in a large bowl, making sure all the squash is coated with oil and seasoning. Spread out on a baking sheet (use two if they are very crowded) and bake for 15 minutes. Flip them around a bit, and bake for 15 minutes more, or until tender and browned.
  2. Done! Enjoy!
