  • Total Time
    Prep/Total Time: 30 min.
  • Makes
    6 servings

Ingredients

  • 1 small butternut squash (about 2-1/2 pounds)
  • 1 jar (16 ounces) pineapple salsa
  • 1 can (15 ounces) black beans, rinsed and drained
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cumin
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground chipotle pepper
  • 6 whole wheat tortillas (8 inches), warmed
  • 2 cups fresh baby spinach

Directions

  • Halve squash lengthwise; remove seeds. Place in a microwave-safe dish, cut side down. Microwave, covered, on high until soft, 15-20 minutes; cool slightly.
  • Meanwhile, in a saucepan, combine salsa and beans; heat through over medium heat, stirring occasionally.
  • Scoop out squash pulp; place in a bowl. Mash until smooth; stir in seasonings. Spoon squash and salsa mixtures onto center of tortillas; top with spinach and roll up.


Test Kitchen Tips
  • If you're short on time, use one 12-oz. package of frozen winter squash instead of a small butternut squash; heat according to package directions.
  • The black bean mixture can be heated in the microwave.
  • For a subtle change in flavor, try mango salsa instead of pineapple salsa.
