I especially like to serve these enchiladas when squash is readily available in our garden. Everyone who tries them likes the fresh saucy flavor.

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Aug. 12, 2011

I MADE THIS AND I LIKED IT BUT MY HUSBAND DIDN'T SO FOR SUPPER I MADE SOME MORE WHITE SAUCE AND ADDED CHEESE SINCE I HAD FORGOTTEN TO PUT THAT IN FIRST. HE LIKED THAT. I THINK IT JUST HAD TOO MUCH CHILI POWDER SO NEXT TIME I MAKE IT I WON'T PUT SO MUCH IN. IT DIDN'T HAVE ENOUGH SAUCE FOR ME SO I DOUBLED THE SAUCE BUT HALVED THE CHILI POWDER AND WOULD LEAVE THE CHILI POWDER OUT NEXT TIME. I LIKE MY ENCHILADAS WITH LOTS OF SAUCE. IT IS A VERY GOOD IDEA TO USE UP THE SUMMER SQUASH. I HAVE GOTTEN SO MANY GOOD RECIPES OFF OF TASTE OF HOME FOR SUMMERR SQUASH. I HAVE ALSO CANNED 28 QTS OF YELLOW SQUASH TO USE IN CASSEROLES AND MUFFINS THIS WINTER. THE REASON I ONLY GAVE IT 4 STARS WAS THE CHILI POWDER IN IT.

This was easy to make and was delicious. Next time I make it, I will try chopping the squash a bit smaller. Great way to use a surplus of summer squash.
