Celebrate Cinco De Mayo

Recipe_01This super-inexpensive recipe is a definite crowd-pleaser!

There’s no better excuse to enjoy south-of-the-border-inspired flavor than Cinco de Mayo, a holiday that honors the Mexican army’s victory over France in the Battle of Puebla. Your whole family will love these burritos, and you’ll be just as pleased with the budget-friendly ingredients. 

Winter Squash Burritos
Makes six burritos

• 1 butternut squash (or other winter squash), cut into ½ inch cubes
• 1-2 tablespoons canola oil 
• 1 onion, diced
• 1 (15 oz.) can black beans, rinsed
• 2 teaspoons taco seasoning*
• 6 whole-wheat tortillas

Preheat oven to 425 °F.  
Toss cubed squash with canola oil and place in a single layer on a baking sheet.
Roast in the oven for 10 minutes, stir, and cook for another 10-15 minutes or until  tender.
While the squash is roasting, cook the diced onion over medium heat until soft. Stir in the black beans and the squash when it is finished cooking. 
Season with taco seasoning and spoon onto whole-wheat tortillas.
Roll, serve, and enjoy

* Make your own taco seasoning to save money and control sodium content: mix together 1 tablespoon chili powder, 1½ teaspoon cumin, 1 teaspoon of pepper, 1 teaspoon salt (optional), ½ teaspoon paprika, and ¼ teaspoon each of garlic powder, onion powder, crushed red pepper, and dried oregano.
