Butternut squash is one of my favorite fall veggies, but sometimes I struggle with new ways to cook it. I have to say that I don’t know how I hadn’t thought of making roasted butternut squash tacos before! The butternut squash is roasted is seasoned with chipotle powder and I added Pace® Chunky Salsa Medium to the tacos. But if you want a milder, kid-friendlier version just leave out the chipotle powder.
