  • 1/2 tsp Ground Cumin
  • 1 tbsp Schultz's Gourmet Seasoning

STEP 1: Preheat the oven to 400°F.

STEP 2: Place acorn squash halves flesh side up on a baking pan. Brush with 1 tbsp of olive oil and sprinkle with salt and pepper. Roast in the oven for 25 minutes or until centers are softened.

STEP 2: Meanwhile, in a 2-quart saucepan, heat remaining tbsp of olive oil over medium-high heat. Add poblano and cook, stirring occasionally until the peppers begin to soften, about 3 minutes. Add the garlic, cumin, and Schultz's Seasoning and cook an additional 3 minutes, stirring.

STEP 3: Add chicken, enchilada sauce, Schultz's Chipotle Cooking Sauce, corn kernels and beans to saucepan. Bring to a low boil, then reduce heat and simmer for about 10 minutes or until sauce thickens. Remove from heat.

STEP 4: If you like cilantro, you can stir 1/2 cup fresh cilantro into the chicken mixture.

STEP 5: Fill the centers of each squash half with the chicken and top with shredded cheese. Bake until the cheese is lightly golden and melted, 15-20 minutes.
