Butternut Squash Fries

This recipe comes to you from my sister Kendra over at "Haden News". She made these Butternut Squash Fries and I couldn't wait to try them. Honestly, they are better than fried french fries. Put these on your list to try:)Butternut Squash Fries
Olive oil cooking spray
1 lb butternut squash, peeled, seeded, long "neck" cut into sixteen 3/4 inch-thick sticks
1 teaspoon table salt
1/2 teaspoon chili powder
Preheat oven to 450 degrees. Coat a baking sheet with cooking spray. Arrange squash fries on prepared baking sheet and sprinkle with salt and chili powder; liberally coat with cooking spray. Roast, turning once, until desired crispness, about 18 minutes.
Note: Start with a large squash. You will end up using about 1 pound of squash and have the "bulb" of squash left over.

Pork chops done on the grill with the "Neelys" Bar-B-Que sauce.
Ranch dressing for dipping the fries:)
Almost forgot the best news.........the fries are only 1 point per serving on Weight Watchers!!!!
