This was a simple recipe. It was a really fun dinner to make when you are watching a game or renting a movie. I made all the toppings and left them in their own pans or bowls. Then I made a each plate separately so the chips didn't get soggy, and I could save any leftovers easier. I also made some quacamole to put on top. I used a mixture of...

My husband and I enjoyed this meal, but it wasn't amazing. First, it was incredibly easy to make on a weeknight. Also, it didn't have ingredients that could spoil quickly, so it was a great standby meal. I can keep all the ingredients on hand. I couldn't find pureed butternut squash, but I did finally find frozen chunks at Target. I just pur...
