Chipotle Squash Tacos with Cilantro Lime Sauce

Chipotle Squash Tacos with Cilantro Lime Sauce

Just BECAUSE  summer is over doesn’t mean tacos are over!

These seasonal chipotle squash tacos are smokey,  warming and so comforting. We even made them on homemade corn tortillas, which is (in my opinion) a must for an incredible taco. The tortillas are covered in jalapeño cream cheese, which gives the whole taco an awesome creamy touch to offset the veggies. Then, they’re topped of with a refreshing cilantro lime sauce to tie everything together.

These tacos are easy to whip up, so get your friends together to help you cook while mostly just munchin’ on some guac and tortilla chips!
