Squash Stuffed with Tex Mex Rice and Beans

This was really yummy again. The sweetness of the squash mixed with the spiciness of the chipotle paste worked really well together. This was kind of a southwestern style dish really yummy and filling.

Squash Stuffed with Tex Mex Rice and Beans (from Green Gourmet Giraffe)
(Serves 4-6)

2-3 small squash
1 tbsp olive oil
1 large leek, washed and chopped
250g brown basmati rice, cooked
2 tbsp chipotle sauce
100g cheese, grated
400g tin corn, drained and rinsed
400g tin black beans, drained and rinsed
1 tsp lemon juice

Bake the squash for about 1-2 hours at 180C until they feel soft, check after 1 hour. Chop off the top and scrape out seeds.

Fry the leek for about 10-15 mins until soft. Mix with the remaining ingredients and taste to check the seasoning.

Stuff as much stuffing as possible into the squash and put back into the oven and bake for about 30 mins. If you have remaining filling, bake in a greased oven dish until top is crispy..
