Chiles and cheese turn mild summer squash into a zesty, satisfying casserole. The jalapenos make this dish quite hot; if you prefer a milder version, use a second can of diced green chiles instead.

"I would like to say, for the record, I have no idea what "summer squash" is. LoL I assumed it was the yellow squash and that's what I used. The flavor was great, the texture was not. My husband hated it. He ate it a little of it for...

A Complete Meal!

This recipe is awesome! To make it a complete meal, we added lean ground turkey with a little taco seasoning. It was very delicious and my family couldn't get enough of it. I plan on trying to make-ahead and freeze it for this fall, since the only downside is heating up the kitchen with the oven being on for about an hour.

quick, easy, adaptable, very delicious!

I just got done making this

I just got done making this for a fundraiser Mexican dinner feeding about 60 people, 4 double batches. It was a big hit and several people asked for the recipe. I'd only made it once before, for family who loved it, but they love tex-mex anything. I wasn't sure how we'll it would do with a crowd, and was quite pleased with how well it went over.

My new favorite Summer Squash recipe

I really loved this dish. I am not a fan of really spicy foods, so I did skip the green chiles & jalapenos. I did add some salt-free fiesta lime seasoning for some spicy flavor. Also, great without the garnishes.

Simple and delicious!

I used about 3 yellow summer squashes and an onion, added corn, black beans, cumin, oregano, chili powder and used only half the amount of jalapenos. I kept the rest of the recipe the same. I also used a mixture of cheddar and mozzarella cheeses. It's delicious! The beans and corn made this a delicious main dish - and It would yummy to dip chips in if I had them (as another reviewers suggested). Really simple good meal!

Fabuloso squash recipe!

This casserole was fantastic! I halved the recipe but kept the salsa the same. My husband and I loved the squash! I have to add that if you use a salsa that is chunky the casserole does not get too wet. I realize, though, that you may not have as many choices of salsa as I do in San Antonio. Maybe you should try straining some of the liquid off of the salsa first.

Flavor, flavor, flavor!

We've been inundated with summer squash from our garden and this Tex Mex casserole was a great way to use some of it up! It's cheesy and spicy, and super easy to make! I added some chopped up homemade veggie burgers for more flavor. This is a great recipe you can feel good about using to branch out and be creative with.

Easy to make, flavor-packed, versatile, good way to use summer squash!
