“Squash with an exciting tex-mex flavor. This recipe is very versatile-use zucchini, yellow, or calabacita squash, RoTel tomatoes, Jack cheese or add mushrooms, kernel corn, and season to taste-esp the salt-a lot will depend on the bacon you use. I also like to add cumin, mexican oregano, and minced garlic or garlic powder. Use fresh tomatoes if you wish-cherry tomatoes are great! Also, this tastes great w/o the cheese, too. I found this recipe in a book my Grandmother gave me, compiled by Ladies Auxiliary of the Medina Lake Volunteer Fire Department, 1978. Enjoy!”
