Cooking Recipes Catalogue

Yellow squash is baked with eggs, milk, Monterey Jack cheese and chiles, nestled between crusts of crushed corn chips. For an extra kick, add 2 chopped Jalapeno peppers, if you dare!

INGREDIENTS (for 8 servings):


  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Grease a 9 x 13 inch casserole dish.
  • Bring a pot of salted water to a boil. Add squash and cook until tender but still firm, about 15 minutes. Drain and set aside to cool.
  • In a large bowl combine eggs, milk, cheese, salt, baking powder, flour and chiles; mix well. Fold in squash.
  • Sprinkle half of the crushed corn chips in the bottom of the prepared dish. Spoon the squash mixture into the dish, and top with the remaining crushed chips.
  • Bake in preheated oven for 30 minutes.
