Every time I make these, they taste soooo good, but I love summer squash. I hope you enjoy them too. Also try these with zucchini or yellow squash.

I made this in a non-stick electric fry pan with non-stick spray. I added pepper and also used sour cream and salsa with the cheese and tomatoes. Delicious! It even reheats in the microwave nicely. One of the best ways to enjoy fresh zucchini. Read More

I made it quesadila style rather than burritos and added some grilled chicken breasts to make it a little hardier and to add some protein and it just didn't work for us. It was just so-so needs something but I don't know what. Will move on to something else. Read More

I am delighted with this recipe! I actually used it as a "starter" and added other seasonings. I used 1 yellow squash and 1 zucchini and we added garlic cumin oregano and pepper. Topped with Monterray Jack cheese tomato and a bit of sour cream. Absolutely to die for! Great versatile recipe. Read More

This was a great recipe! Simple and scrumptious. I didn't have any fresh tomatoes so I left them off. It's simplicity allowed us to enjoy our "fresh from the garden" squash flavors to be enjoyed. Will definitely make again. Read More

It was too different for my young sons. My husband and I really liked it. Great way to eat up squash! My son doesn't like tortillas so he had his in taco shells. I cooked as per the recipe. When putting it in the tortillas I added green tabasco sauce and sour cream. Really good. Read More

We liked this burrito so very much. I sauteed the sliced tomatoes with the squash along with thinly sliced eggplant. We also smeared sour cream on the tortilla and added some finely ground pork into the filling. I almost ate too much it tasted so delicious. Easy too. Read More

I'm rating this for how it's written. Very versatile and like several other reviewers said a good start for adapting to personal taste. I added some bell pepper a small can of green chilis and some spices. Delicious and easy; this will get made regularly in our house especially as the summer squash and/or zucchini start coming in soon. Read More
