Spicy Chipotle Orange Squash Crockpot Recipe

Ingredients needed:

* 1 small buttercup or acorn squash (2 to 2 1/2 lb.)

Preparation steps:

* Spray crockpot with cooking spray. Cut squash in half crosswise; remove seeds and membranes. Pour water into crockpot. Place squash halves, cut sides up, in crockpot. (If necessary, cut off pointed tip so squash stand upright.)
