Mexican Zucchini & Yellow Squash

READY IN: 20mins
Recipe by Deanne McKissick

I had something similar to this at Luby's and wanted to try and replicate. It came out better than I expected and is an exciting and different way to have squash. Even my vegetable avoiding husband loved it.

Yea!!! This is exactly the recipe I was searching for. I had a dish similar to this at a local Mexican place and wanted to recreate it. I added some chicken broth to it and it was divine. I didn't do the cheese though. I wished I had had some mexican cheese. YUMMY!


  1. Peel and slice all squash and put in pot put just enough water to slightly cover squash add rotel (I used mild rotel and only half a can because I have small children and didn't want it too spicy).
  2. add enough cilantro for your own liking sprinkle in salt and pepper to taste boil lightly until squash is tender add a couple of slices of cheese or enough to your liking heat until cheese is melted.
