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.
For a variation, you can add diced potatoes and chopped onions to the mix right before baking. Serve this as a burrito, wrapped in a flour tortilla, or as a stuffing for enchiladas. Serve leftovers with tortiallas and eggs for breakfast.
Yes, it is one TABLESPOON of minced garlic! These are absolutely wonderful. Serve on a bun with teriyaki sauce.....
If freezing in advance, you might want to lessen the garlic just a little as the flavor intensifies. Unless you're like me and LOVE the taste!
The great thing about New Mexican Margaritas is that you can add lemon juice and use less lime...you can blend the jalapeño with the slush... you can have a huge party and make the whole neighborhood happy. Easy to double, triple, or quadruple for parties. And we use every excuse to party!
