Butternut Squash Spinach Enchiladas

Two questions I often receive are a) What do I make for Ben and I on an average night, and 2) What are some of my favorite dishes for entertaining friends. These Butternut Squash Enchiladas are my answer to both.

Although it’s fun to bust out the fancy recipes every now and then, honestly, when I’m hosting friends for dinner, I’d rather choose something that makes everyone feel comfortable, happy, and glad that they wore pants with a little bit of stretch. I’m also not usually organized enough to have a lot of different sides all ready at the same time, so I like to opt for recipes that provide an entire meal in a single pan. In the fall, that means Butternut Squash Spinach Enchiladas.

These Butternut Squash Spinach Enchiladas are one of the earlier dinners I cooked for Ben and myself after we were married, and they’ve since transitioned onto our greatest hits list. They’ve also become one of my favorite recipes to serve friends, because they offer a unique twist on enchiladas, a dish I’ve found to be universally loved and adored by all.
