Chiles and cheese turn mild summer squash into a zesty, satisfying casserole. The jalapenos make this dish quite hot; if you prefer a milder version, use a second can of diced green chiles instead.

Make Ahead Tip: Cover and refrigerate for up to 2 days. Reheat, covered, at 350 degrees F for about 40 minutes. Garnish just before serving.

1/4 cup  all-purpose flour

Coat a 9-by-13-inch baking dish with cooking spray.

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.

We've got so much squash in the garden and I've been looking for good recipes to prepare. This one is a winner ! Today I printed 6 copies of it for my co-workers (all had a taste as last night's dinner was today's lunch) all of whom raved about it. Minor variation: I sliced the squash very thin and the 'casserole' was more of a very heavy soup. Served with corn chips and pita chips it made for a delicious dip. Very flavorful, I'll make this again!
