Very good recipe. I loved it !!!
Tried this recipe. Did not put all the peppers or hot spices because my husband has to stay away from spicy food. Just used the squash, flour, salsa, and I used mozzarella and cheddar shredded cheese. Was delicious and a quick fix meal.
I read some reviews indicating that it's "watery". This is what I did to eliminate that problem. I made only a half-recipe, but used the full amount of flour instead of reducing it by half. The consistency was excellent! My family really liked this. A change I'll try next time is to reduce the amount of jalapeños.
I used zucchini because that is what I had. I seeded the squash as I usually do and that cut down on the "watery" aspect. Delicious and easy to make! Good idea about turning it into soup...that's something I would do!
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.
