Mexican Squash Casserole

I have the YUMMIEST lo-carb recipe for you! Another great one found at Deliciously Thin! This is definitely on high rotation around here! I made it for company last night and it was GOBBLED up!

Mexican Squash Casserole


* 3 yellow squash (I used 1 acorn squash)
* 1 can Ro-Tel tomatoes (I used mild)
* 1 pound ground beef cooked with 1/2 chopped onion and drained
* 1 package of taco seasoning
* 2 cups grated cheddar cheese (of course, I used more!)


Brown ground beef with chopped onion, drain grease. Return skillet to heat and add taco seasoning and ro-tel tomatoes.

Slice squash into thin rounds. In a casserole dish, layer squash, then meat, then cheese.Put into a preheated 350 degree F oven for 20-30 minutes until bubbly and hot.

  1. Glad you loved it! I need to try some of the other ones on the page; I'm anxiously waiting for the farmer's markets to open (since we won't have a garden this year due to water restrictions.)

    The new blog colors are so bright and fun. I always love your designs that look like they're right out of a scrapbook page.

  2. As you can see Tiffany, I love your site and I use a lot of recipes off of it. I still have 1 serving of this left, which I might have for breakfast! LOL!

    We are thinking of putting a garden in. It would need to be a raised bed due to lines running underground. We have a major bunny population here, so a screened enclosure might be best.

    Thanks for the compliments on the blog. I am a blog designer, which allows me to change my design when I want. My signature style is the scrapbook look!

  3. I just made this for dinner. I couldn't find ro-tel tomatoes, so just used regular whole tomatoes that I chunked up. It was delicious-the taco seasoning really gives it flavor and my family did not know they were eating all those vegetables!

  4. This one will be super easy to make vegetarian for the hubby! I can use the veg crumbles :) Can't wait to give it a try. YUM!

  5. I love squash and this looks SOOOOOO good! Thanks!

  6. Thanks for sharing at Saturday Dishes. I have featured you on HammockTracks. I hope you'll return today and link a slow cooker recipes, as that is what we are featuring.
