Step 1
Preheat oven to 400 degrees F (200 degrees C).
Step 2
Heat a large skillet over medium heat, add the Olive Oil (2 Tbsp) . Now add the Butternut Squash (1 1/2) , sprinkle with Brown Sugar (1 tsp) , and season with Salt (to taste) and Ground Black Pepper (to taste) .
Step 3
Cook over medium heat stirring frequently to avoid burning for 15 minutes or until the squash is fork tender.
Step 4
Now toss in the Brussels Sprouts (1 cup) , Garlic (2 cloves) , Fresh Thyme (1 Tbsp) , Chili Powder (1/2 Tbsp) , Cayenne Pepper (1/4 tsp) , and Crushed Red Pepper Flakes (1/4 tsp) .
Step 5
Continue to cook another 10 minutes, stirring frequently until both the squash and brussels sprouts are beginning to caramelize all over.
Step 6
Once caramelized, remove from the heat and stir in the Dried Cranberries (1/2 cup) . Slide the mixture onto a plate.
Step 7
In the same skillet you cooked the veggies in, add 1/3 of the Tortilla Chips (1 pckg) to the bottom and then cover them with 1/3 the cheese - a little Brie Cheese (8 oz) , a little Fontina Cheese (2 cups) , then sprinkle with 1/3 of the veggie mixture.
Step 8
Repeat this 2 more times until all of the cheese and veggie mixture have been used.
Step 9
Place the skillet in the oven and bake for 7-10 minutes or until the cheese is melted and bubbly!
Step 10
To make the cranberry molasses add Pure Cranberry Juice (1 cup) and Brown Sugar (1 Tbsp) to a small saucepot. Bring the mixture to a boil and cook 5-8 minutes or until the mixture is reduced and syrupy.
Step 11
