Makes 4 Servings

  • cubed peeled butternut squash (can substitute sweet potatoes) (3 cups)
  • taco seasoning (1 tbsp.)
  • corn tortillas (8)
  • fresh salsa (1/2 cup)
  • guacamole (1 cup)
  • sliced green onions (1/2 cup)
  • chopped fresh cilantro (to taste)
  • hot sauce (to taste)


  1. Preheat oven to 375 F and line a baking sheet with parchment paper. Rinse butternut squash cubes under cold water and shake off excess. Toss with taco seasoning until coated. Arrange in a single layer on pan and roast for 30-40 minutes, or until fork-tender and browning, flipping halfway. 

  2. Spoon cooked squash into corn tortillas. Top with salsa, guacamole, onions, and cilantro. Drizzle with hot sauce and serve. Note: For heartier tacos, you can add refried beans or black beans. To make homemade guacamole, mash a ripe avocado and stir in lime juice, ground cumin, chopped onion, and chopped cilantro.
