Butternut Squash Tacos




• 1 small butternut squash, peeled, seeded and cut into 1/2″ pieces
• 1/2 tablespoon smoked paprika
• 1/2 tablespoon cumin
• 1/2 tablespoon kosher salt
• a couple pinches freshly ground pepper
• 1 tablespoon Epicurean Extra Virgin Jalapeño Olive Oil
• 1 ripe avocado
• 1/4 large red onion, sliced thinly
• 1/2 cup crumbled feta
• 1/2 cup mayonnaise
• 1 cup of cilantro leaves, torn
• 8 small corn tortillas


1. Heat the oven to 375 degrees and line a large baking sheet with foil. Set aside.
2. Toss the butternut squash with the paprika, cumin, salt, pepper and Epicurean Extra Virgin Jalapeño Olive Oil. Spread it evenly on the foil-lined baking sheet and bake until well browned, about 45 minutes to an hour. Shake the pan to toss the squash a couple times during the cooking time.
3. When the squash is done, heat a skillet over medium-high heat and quickly heat up the tortillas.
4. To assemble, place two tortillas on each of four plates. Spread a dollop of spicy mayo on each tortilla, topping with a handful of squash, a sprinkle of avocado and onion. Top with some cilantro and feta. Add a sprinkle of freshly ground pepper.
