  • 1 medium butternut squash, peeled and diced

  • 1 tbsp olive oil

  • 1 tsp ground cumin

  • 1/2 tsp paprika

  • 1/2 tsp chili powder

  • 1/2 tsp salt

  • 1 can (15 oz) black beans, drained and rinsed

  • 1/4 tsp black pepper

  • 1 can (4 oz) chopped green chilies

  • 8-10 corn tortillas

  • 1 can (15 oz) red enchilada sauce

  • 1/2 cup chopped fresh cilantro

  • 2 cups shredded Monterey Jack cheese


  • Preheat the oven to 375°F.
  • In a large bowl, toss the diced butternut squash with olive oil, cumin, chili powder, paprika, salt, and black pepper. Spread the seasoned squash out on a baking sheet and roast for 20-25 minutes, or until tender and slightly caramelized.
  • In a separate bowl, mix the black beans, chopped green chilies, and fresh cilantro.
  • Heat the corn tortillas in the microwave for 30 seconds, or until warm and pliable.
  • To assemble the enchiladas, spoon a generous amount of the black bean mixture and butternut squash onto the center of each tortilla. Top with a small handful of shredded Monterey Jack cheese, then roll up the tortilla and place it seam-side down in a 9×13 inch baking dish.
  • Pour the enchilada sauce over the rolled tortillas, making sure to cover them evenly. Sprinkle the remaining shredded cheese on top.
  • Bake for 25-30 minutes, or until the cheese is melted and bubbly.
  • Let the enchiladas cool for a few minutes before serving. Garnish with additional chopped cilantro, if desired.
