Butternut squash is an incredibly nutritious vegetable, packed with fiber, vitamins and minerals. It also provides a good source of iron, potassium and vitamin C – making it a healthier and delicious alternative to potatoes when making fries.

These crispy air fryer butternut squash fries are seasoned with smoked paprika, chili powder, cumin and cayenne pepper for a smoky and spicy flavor that’s sure to leave you wanting more! They make for an enjoyable snack or side dish that everyone will enjoy!

Begin by cutting the squash in half lengthwise. Scrape away seeds and peel insides with a sharp knife or vegetable peeler, then slice into thin 1/2-inch pieces (think French fry shapes).

Next, drizzle a small amount of oil over each piece of butternut squash and toss with spices. Doing this helps them become evenly coated with the seasoning and helps prevent them from sticking together while baking.

Once your fries have been tossed with spices, place them into an air fryer basket and cook for 12 to 15 minutes, shaking the basket occasionally. Doing this will guarantee that your fries have a crispy exterior while remaining tender and juicy on the inside.

These fries are so convenient to make – perfect for a fast weeknight meal or you can even prepare them ahead of time and store them in an airtight container in your fridge.
