    This was fantastic!! My garden is over abundant with squash right now so I'm always looking for new ways to use it. This absolutely fit the bill. For our personal taste I added a touch more cumin and a small can of diced jalapenos. Also just to not heat up my kitchen (100* outside) instead of putting it in the oven I just added the cheese on top and covered with a lid until it was melted, 3-4 minutes. Absolutely delicious! Thank you for the new squash recipe, I know I'll be making this a lot.

    Oh My! LOVE THIS RECIPE and so did my apocalypse brother. We take turns cooking for each other and we buy in bulk. This week, I'm going to use rotel tomatoes and chicken! We are both so excited!
