Butternut Squash Quesadilla

If you are a fan of The Matador, then you might recognize this recipe! I used ingredients listed off of their menu and recreated my favorite dish, their Butternut Squash Quesadilla with Cilantro Lime Sour Cream.

Here's what you'll need:

- 3 cups cubed butternut squash
- 1 sweet onion
- Tortillas
- Monterey Jack cheese
- Goat cheese

For the sour cream:

- 8 ounces sour cream (I purchase this pre-cubed at Costco to make life easy)
- Juice of 1/2 a lime
- 2 tablespoons cilantro paste (or you could chop some up, I couldn't find any fresh cilantro at the store)

Begin by roasting cubed butternut squash and chopped onion, season with salt and pepper. Prepare for your house to smell amazing. Do this by setting your oven to 375 degrees for about 30 minutes.

While the squash and onion are roasting, you can make your sour cream. I used 8 ounces of sour cream, two tablespoons of cilantro paste and the juice of half of a lime. I mixed it all together and set back in the fridge.

When your squash and onions are done, take them out of the oven and start to make your quesadillas!

Over a hot skillet, place your tortilla down and sprinkle a small amount of monterey jack cheese and crumbled goat cheese until melted. Then, add your squash and onion mixture. Cook, flip and cook to your liking!

Serve with your cilantro lime sour cream and a nice margarita!
