One of, if not the best meatless squash casseroles I've prepared. I've been cooking for a long,long time and am always looking for healthy recipes. Will forward this one to my family and friends!
Tex-Mex Summer Squash Casserole
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 added black beans, chopped tomato and frozen corn to make this more of a meal. I also added spices to the veggies, cumin, garlic and onion powder, chipotle lime, and pepper. Along with some flour (I didn't measure it out) I added cornmeal, since people found it to be too liquid-y. My dish came out amazing! This is def a keeper recipe!
This dish was so good. Made it for a church function and everyone loved it. I used 2 cans of green chilies instead of the jalepenos. Next time I will do 1/2 zuchinni and maybe some chicken to make it a full meal.
YUM! This will now be my go-to recipe for fresh-from-the-garden zucchini! To try this out for myself first, I used one 13oz zucchini, 1/8c onion, 1/8 cup chopped jarred jalapenos, sprinkle of salt (we're not salt fans), about 2 handfuls of fiesta blend shredded cheese (the only cheese we had on hand), enough salsa to cover most of the top, and a sprinkle of white whole wheat flour. I didn't have the garnish suggestions, so I left those out, as well as the can of green chilies. I loved how this came out! (FYI - You want to bake this until the squash is tender but not mushy!) I baked my smaller portion for 20 minutes covered, uncovered for 10. I plan to make the full-sized recipe for a family get-together on Sunday.
I also can't wait to try all of the reviewers' suggestions for making this a meal - they sound delicious!
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.
