Chipotle Black Bean Stuffed Delicata Squash

*adapted from www.acouplecooks.com
  • 4 delicata squash
  • ¼ cup olive oil
  • 1 can chipotle chiles in adobo sauce
  • 2 cloves minced garlic (optional)
  • 1 tablespoon honey (optional)
  • 2½ cups cooked brown rice
  • 1½ cups salsa
  • 1 15 oz. can of black beans (or 1½ cups cooked)
  • 1½ cups frozen or canned corn kernels
  • 3 green onions or 1 bunch chives
  • 1½ teaspoons cumin
  • 2 teaspoons chili powder
  • ½ teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1 to 1½ cups grated cheddar cheese
  • Hot sauce (optional)
  • Fresh cilantro
  • Sour cream (optional)
What To Do
  1. Start the brown rice (or, make it beforehand and heat it slightly prior to serving). We’ve found in our rice cooker it takes about 40 minutes to cook, but on the stove can take up to 1 hour. Since the filling is added after the squash is roasted, you can roast the squash while cooking the rice.
  2. Preheat to 450F.
  3. Wash the squash, then cut it in half and scoop out the seeds.
  4. Rub each squash half with ½ tablespoon olive oil and sprinkle with kosher salt. OR — Optional: Make a chipotle marinade for the squash. (This step can easily be skipped in favor of rubbing with olive oil.) Dice 2 cloves garlic and 1 chipotle chili; combine with 2 tablespoons of adobo sauce, 1 tablespoon honey, and ¼ cup olive oil (we used a mortar and pestle), then rub on both sides of the squash.
  5. Place the squash halves cut side down on a baking sheet lined with parchament paper, and bake for about 25 minutes, until tender when poked with a fork.
  6. Meanwhile, when the rice finishes, thinly slice the green onions. Chop the cilantro. Drain and rinse 1 can beans (if using canned).
  7. In a large bowl, mix together 2½ cups cooked brown rice, 1 ½ cups salsa, 1½ cups black beans, 1½ cups frozen or canned corn kernels, 3 green onions, 2 tablespoons adobo sauce, 1½ teaspoons cumin, 2 teaspoons chili powder ½ teaspoon garlic powder, and ½ cup shredded cheese. Taste, and adjust seasonings if desired.
  8. When the squash are done, fill each half with the filling mixture. If desired, top with a few dashes hot sauce. Cover with shredded cheese. Place back in the oven for a few minutes until the cheese melts. Top with chopped cilantro and serve, with sour cream if desired.
