  • Yield: Makes 6 to 8 servings
  • Prep time:25 Minutes
  • Bake:20 Minutes


  • 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 (4.5-ounce) can chopped green chiles, undrained
  • 1/4 cup chopped onion
  • 2 tablespoons taco seasoning
  • 1 large egg, lightly beaten

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.

Stir together cooked vegetables, Cheddar cheese soup, and next 5 ingredients until well blended; spoon into a lightly greased 11- x 7-inch baking dish. Sprinkle evenly with cheese.
