Squash Stuffing Casserole

The recipe for this zippy side dish was given to me by my husband's grandmother. Convenient corn bread stuffing mix and a can of green chilies give fast flavor to sliced summer squash. Since I cook for just my husband and me, I often freeze the leftovers for another day. -Tara Kay Cottingham, Munday, Texas

    I used to make this a lot as a main dish. The only difference was that I added chicken and used cream of chicken soup instead. Something crunchy on top. Makes a good easy main dish.

    Very good! I sauteed the veggies, rather than boiling them and used chicken stuffing because my store didn't have the cornbread version. Great way to use up all those garden veggies!

    Very good, loved the flavor the peppers gave this casserole! I did use chicken stuffing, because the store I stopped at didn't have cornbread stove top.

    Easy to make & a great taste. Didn't have cornbread stuffing mix so I used stove top stuffing mix for chicken. It didn't come with a seasoning packet so I just added a big dash of oregano & thyme. Turned out fine. Definitely a keeper recipe.

    Made this for a potluck to go with fried chicken. It was very tasty and even the ones who don't like squash liked it!

    Lots and lots of flavor. Was too spicy for my kids but husband loved it. May try with only 1/2 a can of peppers next time.

    I used Pepperidge Farm cornbread stuffing, so I didn't have a flavor packet to add. It was fine without it and my family liked it.

    Some stuffing mixes come with a seasoning packet - Zatarain's Cornbread Stuffing Mix is one of them.
