Make a grand entrance with my Whole Roasted Kabocha Squash with Chipotle Butter and 'carve' it right at the table --- then get ready for rave reviews.

Total time

0 minutes


  • 1 kabocha squash (generally 3 -4 pounds)
  • chipotle butter
  • 1 stick (1/2 cup) butter (at room temperature)
  • 1 tbsp chipotle powder
  • pinch salt (if you use unsalted butter)


  1. Set oven to 400F
  2. Set squash on a baking sheet and use a small sharp knife to pierce the top a few times.
  3. Bake for an hour, or until a sharp knife pierces the flesh easily.
  4. Slice wedges out of the squash and remove the seeds and fibers with a spoon. Serve hot with Chipotle Butter.
  5. To make the chipotle butter, mix the butter with the chili powder and blend until everything is completed mixed. If you used unsalted butter, add a pinch of salt to taste. Put the butter in a small jar and refrigerate until needed.
