Default Baked Delicata Squash with Chili Lime Butter

Baked Delicata Squash with Chili Lime Butter

Cinnamony Brown Sugar ZESTY LIME GOODNESS!!!
sort of a cross between a sweet potato and butternut squash!!

this is delicata IS considered a winter squash,
however, it is a LOW CARB choice, so i use it as a veggie choice....ALTERNATIVE!!!

this is the nutritional use your own judgement

inside it is similar to pumpkin...and you just scoop out all the seeds
and leave the lovely orange center to bake!!

use as many delicata squashes as you need servings. 1 squash equals 2 servings.

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Clean all your squash by removing all the seeds.

Place the squash cut side down into a baking dish.

Pour water into the dish to about 1/4 inch deep.
Bake in preheated oven until the squash pierces easily with a fork, about 30-40 minutes.

this is what i used...

Meanwhile, melt your butter, and blend the butter with the lime juice and chili powder in a small bowl. add the cinnamon brown sugar syrup to taste

Mix in the lime zest. Season to taste with salt and pepper.

Spread the butter mixture into the cooked squash, and serve immediately.

You can serve it in the shells for an elegant look...or you can scoop it out and sort of whip it and make a light souffle like texture and mound it on your plate!!!

i usually serve it in the shell....

this also freezes well.
