  • Poke the squashes all over with a sharp knife, put in a microwave dish and microwave on high for 5 minutes.
  • If not fork tender, cook by 2 minutes increments until it is. Set aside until cool enough to manipulate.
  • Cut squash in half lengthwise, scoop out seeds, and scrape out the strings with a fork. Set aside.
  • Meanwhile, caramelize the onions in the vegetable oil in a skillet over medium-low heat for about 10 minutes or until brown.
  • Prepare the barbecue sauce according to instructions on package, add the culinary tomato base mix and the chipotle sauce and mix well.
  • Add the sauce mix to the skillet and mix well.
  • Gently fold in the squash and add salt and pepper to taste.
  • Butter the buns and toast them.
  • Garnish with the BBQ pulled squash and serve with a side of coleslaw. Enjoy!


  • In a small bowl, mix the mayonnaise and the coleslaw seasonings.
  • In a big mixing bowl, mix together the cabbage, carrots, and seasoned mayonnaise.

We suggesting buttering up the buns before toasting them and loading them with the pulled squash; the mix of textures is divine. Serve with a side of coleslaw.
