3 to 4 medium yellow supper squash, sliced (about 5 cups)
2 cups shredded Pepper Jack cheese, divided
1 small onion, chopped
1 jalapeno, diced
1 Anaheim pepper, diced
1 Tbsp. olive oil
1 can black beans, rinsed and drained

  • In a large bowl, combine squash, ¾ cup cheese, sautéed onion/peppers, and black beans; sprinkle all with flour and salt; toss well to combine.
  • Transfer all to a greased baking dish (13x9 or smaller…whatever size it all fits in best); bake, covered, 30 to 40 minutes, or until squash is tender.
  • Spoon salsa over the top, sprinkle with remaining cheese; return to oven to bake, uncovered, 10 to 15 minutes more or until golden brown.
