Seems so simple but very good. I dumped a bunch of water out the bottom but then worried it would be too dry... just dolloped some sour cream on top = perfect! Next time I will cut squash smaller so easier to mix the layers. Thanks for the recipe! (Oh, needed to use up some pinto beans and was able to put in 3 1/2 cups!)

This is my third time to make this, and we love it! I'm vegan, my husband and son are not, so I separate this into two casserole dishes, one with cheese and one without. I top mine with diced avocado, and I'm convinced that mine is every bit as good as the one with cheese. Mmmm. I did find that the squash was a little undercooked the first go round, so I started putting just the squash in the casserole dish, covering it with foil, and baking it for 15 minutes before adding the other ingredients.

I used acorn squash and went easy on spice in order to accommodate my family and it tasted delicious. I will definitely make this again. I also did not sauté everything as long as the recipe suggested. Instead, I threw it in the oven while peppers were still crispy and then baked until tender.
