Chicken and Butternut Squash Tortilla / #FabulousFallBounty

I love to eat Chicken Tortillas whenever I can. I order them at restaurants and I make them at home. I would have to say that my favorite thing about them is how versatile they are. When I saw that the box from Melissa's Produce for our #FabulousFallBounty contained a Butternut Squash I was thrilled! I had read that they  were being used in tortillas and I was anxious to give it a try!
The Butternut Squash in the tortillas was amazing! I also included chicken, refried beans, onions and Queso Fresco. I pan grilled a flour tortilla, and added some pico de gallo with homemade chips to go with it! The box also contained shallots and fresh garlic which made this dish over the top!

Chicken and Butternut Squash Tortilla  
(recipe makes 2 with lots of leftovers)
(printable recipe at end of recipe)

2 Shallots
3 cloves Garlic
Butter
2 pounds Chicken Breast
ground Pepper
Butternut Squash
Pinto Beans
Onion Slices
Canola Oil Spray
Salt
2 Flour Tortillas
Queso Fresco
Sour Cream
Avocado


 Peel and chop 2 shallots and 3 cloves of garlic.
Cook the trimmed chicken breasts in 1 tablespoon of melted butter on medium high heat. Add 1 chopped shallot, and 2 cloves of the chopped garlic. Sprinkle the chicken with ground pepper.
Cut and clean out the squash, then cube it so it is all about the same size. Season with pepper. Add the rest of the slices of shallots, and the other clove of garlic as the squash cooks. I also cooked it in the pan that the chicken was cooked in for some additional flavor. To check to see if the squash is done cooking, sick a toothpick in some of the pieces. If it is tender, it is ready to eat.
Heat up pinto beans or make them fresh. Add onion slices for additional flavor.
 Make fresh, or use canned pinto beans. Add onion slices and heat until hot. While you are waiting for everything to cook, use a pizza cutter or pastry wheel to cut two tortillas into chips.  Place on a silpat and spray the chips on both sides with canola oil. Salt if you like. Bake for 3-4 minutes on each side. Check to see if they need more time.
Heat a skillet to medium heat Don't add butter or spray. Once the skillet is heated, place one tortilla in the pan. Watch it carefully, because it will brown quickly. Flip over and brown other side. Don't over brown it, or the tortilla will become hard and not fold.
 Build your tortilla, slicing down the chicken, adding the squash with shallots, the beans, some avocado slices and some queso fresco. Top with sour cream. Wrap in a tortilla and enjoy!
Enjoy! Thank you for stopping by today to participate in the #FabulousFall Bounty! Please stop by Wednesday for the last day of celebrating the bounty! I have a persimmon Pudding Parfait to share with you that tastes amazing!
