Ingredients

  • 1 acorn squash
  • 3 tablespoons barbeque sauce
  • 8 small flour tortillas (fajita sized)
  • 1 can low salt corn, rinsed and drained
  • 2 cups cheddar cheese

Instructions

  1. Heat oven to 400 degrees.
  2. Carefully, puncture the acorn squash with a sharp knife and place on a baking sheet lined with aluminum foil. Bake 40 minutes or until a fork can be easily inserted into the flesh.
  3. Remove from the oven and allow to cool for 10 minutes.
  4. Cut open the squash carefully; it will be steamy and hot inside. Remove the seeds.
  5. In a large bowl, combine the flesh of the acorn squash with the barbeque sauce and mix well, until smooth.
  6. Spread sauce onto tortillas, sprinkle with corn and cheese, and place on the baking sheet used to prepare the squash.
  7. Bake 10 minutes or until the cheese melts and the tortilla begins to brown around the edges.
