yellow squash, sliced
yellow onion, sliced
1 (14.5 ounce) can
diced tomatoes, drained
salt and pepper to taste
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.
Easy...Easy...Easy!!! I sauteed the onion with a minced clove of garlic (instead of garlic powder), then added the meat and browned it. At step 3, I was pretty heavy handed with the chili powder and cumin, and also added a bouillon cube and some italian seasoning, because otherwise, I think it would have been pretty bland. Next time, I think I'll add something spicy. Fast, healthy, simple and tasty!
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.
I really liked this dish! I cooked the squash and onion along with the beef as it browned. That shortened the time needed, as well as eliminating the need for the oil. The recipe does not instruct when to add back in the ground beef, but this took care of that. I will definitely increase the spices the next time. They could easily be doubled for good flavor. Instead of the canned tomatoes, I used my own fresh tomatoes from my garden. Yum!
Calabacitas! Great recipe! I changed the amount of spices a bit and used about 1 tbsp minced garlic, 2 tsp chili powder and a heaping teaspoon of cumin (love the spices). When I simmered everything for 30 minutes, I added a Serrano pepper which I cut in half and let simmer with everything else for an added kick. Served over Jasmin rice. The family loved it. I will make again.
This was great! My boyfriend prefers food with more flavor than most people, so I almost always double seasonings. I doubled cumin and chili powder, used two garlic cloves instead of garlic powder, and I added a quarter teaspoon of cayenne pepper powder. I also used ground turkey instead of ground beef. I would definitely make this again!
This was very good, but would have been far too bland without adding extra spices. I doubled the chili powder and cumin, and I added about 1/2 tsp. thyme and lots of fresh, minced garlic. I used vegetable broth in place of the water. Still, with bumping up the spice, my husband and I added some crushed red pepper at the table. I will definitely make this again when I have extra squash to use. I may try it with sausage instead of ground beef, which would make it less bland.
