Calabacitas Con Chiles Verdes

READY IN: 35mins
Recipe by wildheart

I think that New Mexico has a law on the books that says that everyone has to eat squash regularly. That's okay, because once you've tried this 'squash and chiles', you will like squash! PS zucchini is a green squash...or you can use yellow squash.

This was really yummy! Quite rich with the bacon grease and all but a definite WOW side dish. I mixed cheddar and pepper jack cheese and roasted two pasilla and one anaheim chiles and it seemed like a good ratio between the zucchini and corn.
