Southwestern Squash Casserole – CRAZY good!!! Great side dish for all your tex-mex dishes!! Squash, cheddar cheese, onion, green chiles, jalapeños, cumin, salsa, green onions, red onion. Everyone loved this easy side dish recipe. Great for a potluck and cookout.
This Southwestern Squash Casserole is a new favorite in our house. Squash, onions, peppers, salsa and cheese. All of our favorite flavors in one dish. YUM! We ate this a couple of days in a row and it was delicious every single time.
This recipe makes a ton. It is great for a summer cookout. You can make this ahead of time and refrigerate until you are ready to bake the casserole. This goes great with the Taco Ranch Chicken I shared earlier this week. It is also great with steak and pork. We’ve made it several times over the last couple of months and it is always a hit!
