Butternut Rancheros

Can you believe it? Two new dishes and two back-to-back posts. I know, it’s crazy.

Our CSA items have been dictating our meals, so I needed to find a recipe that would be a great fit for the small butternut squash I received. The first place I looked was the Post Punk Kitchen website, where I found this Butternut Rancheros recipe. And, seriously, it’s one of the best dishes I’ve had in a while. The beans are so flavorful and pair perfectly with the roasted butternut squash.

I did change up a few things. The original recipe calls for cumin and coriander seeds, but I only had ground for both, so I just added it to the onions, jalapenos and garlic instead of roasting first. Also, the recipe calls for blending the onion and tomato sauce mixture before adding the beans, but I just left them whole. And, honestly, my only reasoning was that I didn’t want to have to wash my blender. Call me lazy. And I had some flour tortillas that needed to be eaten, so I threw them on the side, but they’re not necessary.

The dish comes together really fast. While the butternut squash is roasting in the oven (be careful slicing it!!), you can prepare the beans. And it’s really budget-friendly, too, if you have the spices on hand. I’ll definitely be making this dish again.

Enjoy!
