One of my favorite side dishes - and very flexible. I've used all kinds of summer squash (whatever's ripe or available at the farmers' market). And I seldom finish it off in the oven, settling instead for doing it all on the stove top. I frequently use a chili-based Penzy's seasoning blend instead of the poblano chili. Thanks Sue, for a great starting-off point to guide my cooking. And now, my apologies for reviewing a recipe I didn't follow. My purpose was to encourage others not dismiss it if you're short on an ingredient or time. At least I didn't say "I followed the recipe to a T, except, except, except."

I enjoyed this very much! I used 2 hatch chiles instead of poblano, and it was great. Used cheddar, but I think next time I will try 1/2 cheddar and 1/2 queso fresco. Thanks for posting!

I made this with recipe 279162 for supper and they complimented each other nicely! This was a great healthy Mexican side dish. I used 1/2 of a poblano because I'm not used to cooking with it and wasn't sure of the heat. Next time I'll definitely use 1 whole chile. I sprinkled some cumin and garlic salt to the mixture while it was sauteeing. This would be great with black beans added to it.

Very tasty. I used a jalapeno instead of poblano, and it still turned out great. Thank you.

This was ok. It wasn't overly exciting for us and I had quite a bit left over. I added a can of chicken broth and a few seasonings to the leftovers and it made a delicious soup. Even though we didn't think the original recipe was awesome, it led to another good meal. Thanks for sharing.

This was the side dish I served with steak Grilled Steaks (Or Chops) With Chipotle Butter. This squash was so good. This was the first time we have tried squash prepared this way. I couldn't find queso fresco cheese so used cheddar. I could eat this as a main dish. Will make again. Thanks Sue L. Bullwinkle

this was the perfect thing for me to bring to a Mexican potluck yesterday. I used yellow squash, added cilantro, and substituted jalapeno plus green pepper for the poblano. It was very tasty, and one that will go into my keeper file!

Another great recipe, no surprise, from SueL! I had a dinner party last night with a Southwest/Mexican theme; this dish was very pretty and tasted great. I couldn't find poblanos to save my life, so I substituted a gorgeous orange jalapeno that I had. This is fancy enough for company, easy enough for every day! Thanks, Sue!

This was very good and a nice change from the traditional rice and beans. I will make this again, cutting back on the garlic slightly.
