This is a meal prepared in 30 minutes and takes only one pan! Cast iron cooking is some of my favorite.

Save even more time by buying butternut squash already cubed.

Saute the squash and cumin for 10 minutes or so, then mix in black beans, corn, and a tomato.

Squeeze some lime juice in there.

Top with your favorite cheese and dig in.

Serving with tortilla chips is optional but works really well.

If you want to make it spicy (you saw that coming if you know me!) throw some sliced jalapeno in with the veggies, and/or serve with hot sauce/sriracha.

I seriously can't get enough of this dish.

Not sure what I did but I had to microwave the squash to get it to cook. I added extra spices and veg but will not be making it again. Not our taste at all and we like vegetarian dishes.

I’ve never worked with butternut squash, do I cook it before cubing?

No. I buy pre-cut squash but you can google how to cut butternut squash to see instructions!

This looked and sounded so good I had to make it for dinner tonight! The cumin really added a nice flavor to this dish. I may throw in some black olives next time I make it.
