Yum! This is so delicious. I used minced garlic mixed in with the squash and onions, but didn't change anything else. It smelled delicious while cooking. I served it over plain white rice and I think that was a good addition. Thanks for recipe.

This is a great and easy recipe. Lots of flavor and yummy. I used my crock-pot to make it and it was great.



Family LOVED it over some brown rice. I also, doubled the spices and used fresh garlic (alot). I served it with grated cheese, sour cream, cilantro and hot sauce to suit everyones flavors.
