  • CHOP butternut squash into smaller 1/2 -in. pieces. Heat a large non-stick frying pan over medium-high. Add canola oil, then squash. Cook until squash is lightly browned and tender, 3 to 4 min per side. Transfer to a medium bowl. Add onion and chili powder to pan. Cook, stirring occasionally, until onion starts to soften, 2 min.

Wine Pairings

Turkey burritos
Pair it with: A fruity Pinot Gris.

With a generous mouth feel that coats the tongue in flavours of ripe melon, Golden Delicious apples and Bartlett pears, this almost off-dry West Coast pinot gris really turns on the charm alongside these delicately spiced burritos.

Our pick: Firesteed Pinot Gris, Oregon, $18.
