I was looking for something new to do with summer squash and found this recipe on cooking.com. It was a hit. I have been asked for the recipe more than once. it is just a little different. The recipe calls for chopped jalapenos and cheddar cheese. I didn't have the cheddar on hand, but did have a cheese called "3 Alarm" cheese, with japapenos, chipotle, and habaneros. We loved it.

Hope you enjoy as well.
