  • 1 pound yellow squash, sliced
  • 1 pound zucchini, sliced
  • 1 cup water
  • 1 (10 3/4-ounce) can cheddar cheese soup
  • 1 cup crushed tortilla chips

  • 1/4 cup chopped onion
  • 2 tablespoons taco seasoning
  • 1 large egg, lightly beaten
  • 1 cup (4 ounces) shredded Monterey Jack and Cheddar cheese blend


  1. Place first 3 ingredients in a large microwave-safe glass bowl, and cover tightly with plastic wrap; pierce plastic wrap with a fork several times to vent. Microwave at HIGH 8 to 9 minutes or until vegetables are tender; drain. Press between layers of paper towels to remove excess moisture.
