This is a recipe I found on Allrecipes.com. It was submitted by: Liz. She states: "This spicy cheese and ground beef casserole can be used as a side dish or a main course! Any type of squash or ground meat may be used. For winter squash, you may want to pre-cook in the microwave before frying in butter to speed the process."

- 1 onion, chopped
- 3 jalapeno peppers, seeded and diced
- 2 eggs, beaten
