  • 1 package (10 ounces) frozen riced butternut squash
  • 1 teaspoon olive oil
  • 1 cup frozen corn, thawed
  • 1 can (15 ounces) black beans, rinsed and drained
  • 1/3 cup water
  • 1/2 teaspoon chili powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground cumin
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground turmeric, optional

  • 1 medium ripe avocado, peeled and thinly sliced
  • 2 green onions, thinly sliced
  • Optional: Salsa, sour cream and shredded Colby-Monterey Jack cheese
