Watch How to Prepare Winter Squash.

Use a medium butternut squash (2 to 3 pounds) to make about 2 cups of diced squash.

Use spices like onion powder, chili powder, or cayenne pepper instead of the cumin or garlic powder.

Put 2 to 3 tortillas at a time in the microwave. Heat for 10 seconds so they do not tear.
