Squash and Green Chile Casserole

Squash casserole - there’s lots of ways to prepare it, but we’d venture to guess that if you are a Hatch Green Chile fan, this version will probably be a favorite in your house.

The creamy, cheesy mixture with the fire from the chiles is something new and exciting for a large group or keep it small and have a lot to yourself.

Squash casserole is often a side dish, but this one is so good that you can easily serve it as a main dish.
