Calabaza de Bellota –Fantástico

This fantastic acorn squash recipe is one I like to serve with my Mexican Roasted Chicken recipe, they compliment each other quite nicely  So easy and tasty!!

1 acorn squash
1 tablespoon orange marmalade
1 tablespoon melted butter or margarine
1/4 teaspoon chili powder
1/4 teaspoon cumin
good pinch dried oregano
good pinch garlic powder

Slice the acorn in half and place in a baking pan large enough to hold both pieces, add enough water to come up 1/4 in the edge.
Cook in a preheated 375 degree Fahrenheit oven for 30 minutes.
Meanwhile whisk together the remaining ingredients.
Remove the squash from the oven, carefully turn them over in pan and cut a few slits in the flesh making sure not to pierce the skin.
Add 1 tablespoon of the marmalade mixture in each half and brush this sauce over the inside and top edges of the squash and return to oven.
Cook for another 15 minute or until all the flesh is soft.
Scrape the flesh out of the shell and serve.
