This is a hearty vegetable casserole with a Mexican flair and with the addition of leftover/cooked chicken, it can become a great dinner casserole. The heat can easily be varied by changing the amount of green chiles, adding jalapenos, or by adjusting the amount of spice in the salsa.

  • Combine yellow squash, zucchini, 1/2 of the Cheddar cheese, chile peppers, onion, and salt in a large bowl. Sprinkle with flour and toss to coat. Spread mixture into the prepared baking dish and cover with aluminum foil.

  • Bake in the preheated oven until squash is tender and casserole is bubbly, 35 to 40 minutes. Remove from the oven and discard foil. Spread salsa on top and sprinkle with remaining cheese. Return to the oven and bake, uncovered, until golden and heated through, about 20 minutes more.

  • Garnish with green onions just before serving.
