Southwest Squash Casserole

Rated as 4.08 out of 5 Stars

"Easy to prepare, this recipe is flavorful yet can pack a 'punch' if you choose. Squash tend to be mild but by adding diced green chiles (and jalapenos if you want spicier) it's a surprisingly tasty recipe. It pleases a lot of people and has become a favorite at family gatherings."

Delicious! I used fat-free sour cream, added left over cauliflower, fresh tomatoes, fresh spinach, left off taco chips and jalapenos, added a dash of red pepper.

A bit of flour stirred into the sauce helps with the watery factor for squash dishes, but truthfully we found this dish to be quite bland. It really needed a healthy dose of bold spices to jazz...
