These Tex-Mex inspired stuffed Squash can be filled with whatever you have on hand: beans, corn, tomatoes, cheese, etc. Use meat in the first step, or skip entirely for a vegetarian version. For a garnish, add sour cream, minced candied jalapeños or chopped cilantro.
Patty Pan squash is one of my favorites. It’s very flavorful, easy to cook with, and we get a ton of them come Summer. This recipe takes advantage of its bowl-like shape, and the stuffing can be made with whatever you have on hand or have a tasting for. You also can use Zucchini instead of Patty Pan, just follow the same recipe and make long Zucchini Boats (cut in half and scoop out most of the flesh from the middle), steam, and stuff.
