Butternut Squash Nachos

Hello friends!
Happy happy first Friday of fall!  It is officially my favorite season!  Although the temperatures have been SO hot the past 2 weeks! It almost seems hotter than August!
Despite it still being hot outside, I am determined to lure in cooler temperatures with some yummy fall recipes! If you missed my new Pumpkin Pie smoothie, you can get the recipe here!

I also want to say a HUGE thank you to all the kind words of encouragement for my vulnerable post about some recent life events.

I went to Trader Joe’s the other day, and it was ALL THINGS PUMPKIN!  I have to say that made my heart pretty happy.  I had to restrain myself from buying everything with the word pumpkin! Haha  But I did find something that inspired the recipe for today!

I am linking up with Farrah from Fairyburger, Annmarie from the Fit Foodie Mama, and Jess from Hello to Fit for our comfort food themed week!


 Butternut Squash & Goat Cheese Nachos


  • Large handful of pumpkin chips (or your favorite tortilla chip)
  • 2 cups cubed butternut squash (I cheated a little and got some pre-chopped, but you can always buy a whole squash and peel and chop it yourself!
  • 1 red pepper, washed, cored and chopped into 1 inch squares
  • Goat cheese, shredded- As much as desired
  • 1 avocado any any other desired nacho toppings
  • Spices- Salt, pepper, paprika, garlic




  1. Pre-heat oven to 425* F
  2. Place veggies on a lined baking sheet, cover with spices to taste
  3. Bake for 20-25 min
  4. Carefully remove the veggies into a bowl
  5. Turn oven onto broil
  6. Place a layer of chips on the baking sheet
  7. Scoop the veggies onto the chips
  8. Sprinkle on desired amount of cheese (you can also add a layer between the chips and veggies if desired
  9. Broil for 1-2 min, watching carefully
  10. Remove from the pan onto a plate
  11. Add avocado or other desired toppings
  12. Enjoy!
