Recipe Ingredients for Butternut Squash and Chile Saute

1 1/2 pounds butternut squash
1 pound Poblano chiles
1 tablespoons olive oil
1 cup chopped yellow onion
1 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon chili powder

Recipe Directions for Butternut Squash and Chile Saute

  1. With a vegetable peeler, peel the squash, then cut in half, and remove the seeds. Cut the squash into 1/4-inch pieces.

  2. Roast the peppers by placing them over a stove top gas flame, turning them frequently with tongs until all sides are charred black, about 7 to 10 minutes. (Alternately, the peppers can be roasted under a broiler, or on top of a gas or charcoal grill.) Place the blackened peppers in a plastic or paper bag, and let rest until cool enough to handle, about 15 minutes. Remove the stems and seeds, and chop.

  3. Heat the oil in a large skillet or saute pan over medium-high heat. Add the onions and cook, stirring, for 3 minutes. Add the squash, salt, and chili powder, and stir well. Cover and cook until the squash is almost tender, stirring occasionally, about 10 to 12 minutes. Stir in chiles and cook, uncovered, for 3 minutes. Sprinkle the cheese over the vegetables and cover. If using cheese, Lower the heat to medium-low and cook until the cheese is melted, about 2 minutes.

  4. Serve hot out of the pan.
