Baked Winter Squash with Lime Butter
2 Delicata or acorn squash, halved and seeded
3 tablespoons butter, softened
1 tablespoons fresh or bottled lime juice
1 teaspoon chili powder
1/2 teaspoon lime zest
Salt and pepper to taste
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Place the squash cut side up into a baking dish. Pour water into the dish to about 1/4 inch deep.
Bake in preheated oven until the squash pierces easily with a fork, about 30 minutes.
Meanwhile, blend the butter with the lime juice and chili powder in a small bowl. Mix in the lime zest, if desired. Season to taste with salt and pepper. Brush the butter mixture onto the squash and cook for about 5 more minutes.
Spoon the remainder of the mixture into the squash and serve immediately.
