Squash Taco Casserole

Our garden has started producing a plethora of squash… and by a plethora of squash, I mean 14 summer yellow squashes in 4 days. This can only mean one thing… Squash Season has officially begun. I have more squash recipes than I can count, and now I think it’s time to start sharing them with you! This first one comes to you from the great folks at Low Carb Yum. I didn’t follow their recipe exactly, but it still turned out great.

Overall, I’d rate this a 6 out of 10 on a taste scale. I used more cheese than the original recipe called for, and I used less meat. I also used tomatoes I canned last fall instead of the can of diced tomatoes. When I make this again, I’m going to cube the squash rather than layering them in the pan. I think cubing them will make the meal a little easier to eat.

Directions:

– Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
– Add canned tomato and seasonings to cooked meat and simmer for about 5 minutes.
– Place the sliced squash at the bottom of a 9×13 inch baking pan. Place meat mixture on top of squash, sprinkle grated cheese on top.
– Bake in preheated oven for about 25 minutes.

Ingredients:

2 cups summer squash, thinly sliced
1 can dice tomato, 14.5 oz
1 pound ground beef, cooked and drained
2 teaspoons chili powder
1 ½ teaspoons paprika
1 ½ teaspoons cumin
1 teaspoon onion powder
3/4 teaspoon garlic salt

Thanks for sharing the great recipe Low Carb Yum!
