Tex-Mex Summer Squash Casserole

From: EatingWell

Chiles and cheese turn mild summer squash into a zesty, satisfying casserole. The jalapenos make this dish quite hot; if you prefer a milder version, use a second can of diced green chiles instead.

2 1/4 pounds  summer squash, quartered lengthwise and thinly sliced crosswise (about 10 cups)
2/3 cup  finely chopped yellow onion
1 4-ounce can  chopped green chiles
1 4-1/2-ounce can  chopped jalapenos, (about 1/2 cup), drained
1/2 teaspoon  salt, or to taste
2 1/4 cups  grated extra-sharp Cheddar cheese, (about 7 ounces), divided
1/4 cup  all-purpose flour
3/4 cup  mild salsa
4   scallions, thinly sliced, for garnish
1/4 cup  finely chopped red onion, for garnish
1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees F. Coat a 9-by-13-inch baking dish with cooking spray.
2. Combine squash, onion, chiles, jalapenos, salt and 3/4 cup cheese in a large bowl. Sprinkle with flour; toss to coat. Spread the mixture in the prepared baking dish and cover with foil.
3. Bake the casserole until it is bubbling and the squash is tender, 35 to 45 minutes. Spoon salsa over the casserole and sprinkle with the remaining 1 1/2 cups cheese. Bake, uncovered, until golden and heated through, 20 to 30 minutes. Sprinkle with scallions and red onion.
MAKE AHEAD TIP: Cover and refrigerate for up to 2 days. Reheat, covered, at 350 degrees F for about 40 minutes. Garnish just before serving.

This was delicious! I added black beans and red peppers to give a little more texture. Will certainly make again.
