Corn squash casserole is a great way to use up fresh squash from the garden.

Corn Squash Casserole

This corn squash casserole can be made with all yellow squash, all zucchini squash or a combination of both.  I did a little of both in the photos in this post.  You could double this recipe and it keeps well refrigerated for several days.  Reheat in microwave or oven.  We love anything with a Mexican twist and this contains a fiesta blend cheese plus spices that give it a Mexican flair.  My family loved this and I think you will, too.  You might also like to check out our recipe for yellow squash fritters.

Corn squash casserole is one of our favorite ways to use zucchini and yellow squash.

Pour mixture into a baking dish and add topping below.
