Recipe Ingredients for Tex-Mex Summer Squash Casserole

2 1/4 pounds summer squash, quartered lengthwise and thinly sliced crosswise (about 10 cups)
2/3 cup finely chopped yellow onion
4 ounce chopped green chiles
4 1/2 ounce chopped jalapenos (about 1/2 cup), drained
1/2 teaspoon salt
2 1/4 cups grated extra-sharp Cheddar cheese (about 7 ounces), divided
1/4 cup all-purpose flour
3/4 cup mild salsa
4 scallions, thinly sliced, for garnish
1/4 cup finely chopped red onion for garnish

Recipe Directions for Tex-Mex Summer Squash Casserole

  1. Preheat oven to 400F. Coat a 9-by-13-inch baking dish with cooking spray.

  2. Combine squash, onion, chiles, jalapenos, salt and 3/4 cup cheese in a large bowl. Sprinkle with flour; toss to coat. Spread the mixture in the prepared baking dish and cover with foil.
