  • 1 medium butternut squash
  • 1 tsp coconut oil
  • 1/3 cup onions chopped
  • 2 cloves garlic minced
  • 1 cup black beans rinsed
  • 1/2 cup fire roasted diced tomatoes
  • 1/4 cup tomato paste
  • 1 tbsp ground chili powder
  • 1 tsp ground cumin
  • 1/8 tsp cayenne
  • 1 ounce aged cheddar shredded
  • 2 tbsp sour cream
  • 1/2 avocado sliced


  • Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
  • While oven heats, cut butternut squash into fries. I peeled the squash, then cut in half length wise, removed the seeds, cut it in half again to make quarters, then cut 1/4"-1/2" thick fries.
  • Grease baking sheet with a little coconut oil cooking spray, then lay fries out into single layer and bake at 400 for 15 minutes.
  • Meanwhile, add chopped onions and minced garlic to a sauce pan with coconut oil and saute on stove top over medium heat for 3-4 minutes or until onions are translucent and garlic begins to brown.
  • Add black beans, fire roasted tomatoes, and tomato paste to onions and garlic, then stir to combine. Add chili powder, cumin, and cayenne and cook over medium low heat for 5-7 minutes or until mixture is heated through and flavors are well blended.
  • Once fries are cooked and have cooled for 1-2 minutes, layer them on large platter or two separate plates, top with black bean vegetarian chili mixture, then sprinkle with shredded cheese {I used aged cheddar}, drizzle with sour cream, and garnish with sliced avocado.
  • Serve and EAT!
