Whole Roasted Kabocha Squash with Chipotle Butter Recipe

Try my Whole Roasted Kabocha Squash with Chipotle Butter for a healthy fall side dish. This method is the greatest way to cook winter squash.

– 1 kabocha squash, (approximately 3-4 pounds) CHIPOTLE BUTTER – 1/2 cup unsalted butter, at room temperature – 1 Tbsp chipotle powder – pinch salt, (omit if you used salted butter)



Set oven to 400°F. Place squash on a baking sheet and pierce the top with a small sharp knife.

Step 1

Step 2

A sharp knife should easily puncture the flesh after one hour of baking. Slice squash wedges and spoon out seeds and fibers. Serve hot with Chipotle Butter.

Step 3

Blend the butter and chili powder together until everything is fully mixed to make the chipotle butter.

Step 4

If you used butter that wasn't salted, add a little salt to taste. Put the butter in a small jar and keep it in the fridge until you need it.
