I came across this recipe and thought it sounded like and interesting way to use large squash blossoms if you are lucky enough to have some extras. Recipe source: Coyote Cafe

Ellie, this was so good, although I did make a few changes. I used daylily flowers, which are a little smaller than squash blossoms. I didn't have enough swiss cheese, so use about half cheddar. I loved the spices! This was great with a mild salsa. Thanks Ellie!
