1. Preheat your oven to 425°F (220°C). Cut the butternut squash in half, lengthwise. Scrape out seeds and rub cut sides with 1 tablespoon olive oil each. Place squash halves cut sides down in a baking dish. Roast for about 45 minutes, or until flesh is completely fork tender. Remove from oven, flip the squash halves over, and let cool. Scoop the flesh out and set aside.

2. Reduce the heat of your oven to 350°F (180°C). Place tortilla chips onto a baking sheet and brush with olive oil. Sprinkle with cumin, salt and pepper. Bake for 15 minutes until lightly browned and crisp. Set aside.

2. Place all the ingredients for the butternut hummus into a blender or food processor and blend until smooth. Adjust seasonings and stir well. Transfer to a serving bowl and top with a drizzle of olive oil. Sprinkle with cayenne pepper and serve with flatbread chips. Store in your refrigerator.
