This recipe will be repeated in our house.  I made it without the cheese and added 1 tsp. cinnamon--so delicious!

I made this for a food tasting and pretty much everyone who tried it really liked it.  Many were surprised how good it was.  One lady even said it would be a great tamale filling which I thought was a great idea.  It would also be good as an enchilada filling. It was a huge success. 

We made this with delicata squash and a variety of peppers from my neighbor's garden. I threw half a tiny jalapeno in, and it was spicy! However, the sweetness of the squash made it so delicious. I skipped the cheese due to a dairy allergy and it was great without it. Love this recipe! We had it with steak and grits with goat cheese for a complete meal.

Made this because I had poblano peppers to use up. My husband, who doesn't always like squash, loved it!

Really, really good a surprise to loads of people how much they liked this. I used jack cheese. I tried it with home grown and roasted poblano peppers and the canned whole and canned diced green chile's. All were equally good, so I recommed buying the diced because it is so much easier. I think the addition of a little more salt and a pinch of Red Pepper flakes makes it better.

Nice spicy touch!
