After school snack: Butternut Squash Hummus (recipe)

I made this last week for our first TGIF block party, using the Butternut Squash that came in our weekly box from Two Small Farms, and it was a great success. Very easy, and the butternut squash made the hummus sweet and tasty. My kids enjoyed it as an after-school snack with pita chips and sugar snap peas.
