Serves 6

  • 1 butternut squash, peeled and cubed into ½ inch cubes
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon cumin
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground coriander
  • 1 dash cayenne pepper
  • 1/2 teaspoon pepper
  • 8 ounces sour cream
  • 2 teaspoons adobo sauce (from a can of chipotles in adobo), more to taste
  • 1/4 cup chopped cilantro
  • 6 pieces bacon
  • 1 bunch curly kale, cleaned, stems removed and torn
  • 5 eggs
  • 3 green onions, chopped
  • 6 tortillas, fajita sized, warmed
  1. Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F. Toss the butternut squash cubes in a large bowl with the olive oil, salt, cumin, coriander, cayenne, and pepper. Roast in the oven until browned and cooked through, 25-30 minutes.
  2. While the squash is cooking prepare the chipotle sauce by whisking the sour cream, adobo sauce, and cilantro, set aside.
  3. In a large skillet cook the bacon until crispy, remove to a paper towel to drain. Crumble, and set aside. Remove all but 3 teaspoons of bacon grease from the pan. Add the torn kale to the pan and sauté until it wilts, 3-5 minutes. Remove, and set aside. In a small bowl whisk the eggs with salt and pepper to taste. Pour into the pan and scramble until cooked through.
  4. To prepare, top a tortilla with a scoop of squash, a spoonful of scrambled eggs, a dollop of chipotle sauce, crumbled bacon, green onions, then roll up.
