DIRECTIONS

  • Mix chili powder and lemon juice together in small bowl. Place the squash in a very large microwave-safe bowl and pour the spicy lemon juice over it. Toss to coat cubes evenly. Push cubes toward the sides of the bowl so that they cook evenly.
  • Cover and microwave on high (100%) for 14 minutes. The squash is done when the tip of a small sharp knife or toothpick slides through a few of the cubes easily. Until done, re-cover and microwave at 2 minute intervals.
  • If serving hot, scoop onto plate with a large serving spoon and serve immediately. If serving cold, refrigerate until cool.
