      Tex-Mex Summer Squash Casserole
      10 cups summer squash, sliced
      4 1/2-oz can green chilies, chopped
      1/2 tsp salt
      1/4 cup flour
      4 scallions sliced
      2/3 cup onion, chopped
      4 1/2-oz can jalapenos, chopped
      2 1/4 cups cheddar cheese, grated
      3/4 cup salsa
      1/4 cup red onion, chopped
      Preheat oven to 400.
      Coat 9 by 13 inch baking pan with cooking spray.
      Combine squash, onion, chilies, jalapenos, salt and 3/4 cup of cheese in a large bowl.

      Sprinkle with flour. Toss to coat. Spread the mixture in the prepared pan and cover with foil.
      Bake the casserole until it is bubbling and the squash is tender, 35-45 minutes.

      Spoon salsa onto the casserole and sprinkle with the remaining 1 1/2 cups of cheese. Bake, uncovered, until golden and heated through, 20 to 30 minutes. When ready to serve, sprinkle with scallions and red onion.

      This recipe does a good job of balancing the freshness of the summer squash with the brightness of the spices of the chiles and pepper. I agree with other reviewers that the casserole remained slightly watery; however, the end result is a really flavorful dish.

      What other reviewers? LOL! You must have had some juicy squashgiggle smiley

      Next time try adding a bit more flour to soak up the juice and be more ‘saucy.’
