A fast, easy, hearty meal that's wholesome and packed with veggies!
Serves: 4-6 servings
  • 2 tsp oil
  • 1 medium onion, thinly sliced
  • 1 large red bell pepper (or two small), thinly sliced
  • ½ tsp cumin
  • ½ tsp oregano
  • 1 package Earthbound Farm frozen butternut squash
  • 1-2 cups Earthbound farm baby spinach
  • 6 flour tortillas (I like the uncooked ones in the refrigerated section best)
  • 8 oz organic shredded cheese (Mexican blend, Monterey Jack or Cheddar)
  1. Heat oil over medium heat in a medium-sized skillet.
  2. Add onion and sauté 3-5 minutes or until soft.
  3. Sprinkle with salt and add sliced bell pepper. Saute another 3-5 minutes.
  4. Stir in cumin and oregano and remove from heat.
  5. Heat butternut squash according to package directions (I microwave it), then drain well.
  6. Heat a griddle or another skillet over medium heat.
  7. Place a tortilla on the griddle and sprinkle with cheese (if using uncooked tortillas, cook for 30 seconds each side before sprinkling with cheese).
  8. Top the cheese with some of the onion & pepper mixture, some squash cubes and a small handful of spinach leaves.
  9. Fold tortilla in half and cook until cheese is completely melted and veggies are hot.
  10. Cut into wedges and serve with salsa, sour cream, avocado and/or warm refried beans.
