Delicata Squash Tacos

Ingredients

  • 1 small delicata squash
  • 1 T olive oil
  • 1 T adobo seasoning
  • 1 cup black beans
  • 1 T lemon juice
  • ½ tsp coriander
  • ½ tsp cumin
  • ¼ tsp salt
  • 4-6 tortillas, warmed
  • 1 oz crumbled goat cheese
  • Minced cilantro
  • Minced red onion
  • Lime juice

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 400 F. Cut delicata squash in half long-wise, remove seeds, then into slice into half moons.
  2. Place squash in a bowl, drizzle w/olive oil, and toss with seasoning. Cook on parchment paper for 15-20 minutes.
  3. While roasting, combine black beans with lemon juice and spices. You can cook the beans in a small pot for a few minutes, but personally I prefer not to.
  4. When squash is done roasting, assemble tortillas with all the fun things! It’s really that easy!
