Servings: 6 servings.

Ingredients:
2 small butternut squash (about 2-1/2 pounds total), halved
2 tablespoons olive oil
¼ cup chopped onion
1 tablespoon minced garlic
½ cup drained canned corn

12 6-inch-diameter corn tortillas
2 cups grated Monterey Jack cheese (about 8 ounces)
2 cups grated mozzarella cheese (about 8 ounces)

Tomatillo Sauce (see recipe)
Sour cream
1/3 cup chopped pitted black olives

Directions:
Preheat oven to 400°F. Pour enough water into roasting pan to come ½ inch up sides of pan. Place squash halves, cut side up, in pan. Bake until tender, adding more water as necessary, about 1 hour 45 minutes. Cool squash completely. Remove seeds from squash; spoon squash into bowl. Discard squash skin.

Heat oil in heavy large skillet over medium heat. Add onion and garlic; sauté 3 minutes. Mix in squash and corn. Season with salt and pepper.

Heat 1 tortilla over direct flame until soft and heated through, turning with tongs, about 10 seconds per side. Repeat with remaining tortillas.

Place 1 heaping tablespoon squash mixture down center of each tortilla. Top with 1 tablespoon of each cheese. Roll up tortillas. Arrange seam side down in 13x9x2-inch glass baking dish. (Can be prepared 6 hours ahead; cover and chill.)

Preheat oven to 350°F. Spoon Tomatillo Sauce and remaining cheese over enchiladas. Bake until enchiladas are heated through, about 20 minutes. Place 2 enchiladas on each of 6 plates. Top with sour cream. Sprinkle with olives.
