We have some home grown crookneck squash and some killer music flowing through the ' Mad Meat Genius Kitchen' The recipe starts with some Jazz. The ingredients flow with peppers and tortillas. Oh by the way there is some killer carnitas in the Beehive. This is a meal to bring in the Fourth of July. Happy day to you all!!!

Vegetable Tortilla Lasagna

  1. 1 cup of corn
  2. 1 large crookneck squash cut into thin strips
  3. 1 cup of black beans
  4. 1 1/2 cup of jarred or home made salsa verde
  5. 1/2 cup of sour cream
  6. 8 flour tortillas cut into strips
  7. 1 cup of cheese of choice. (cheddar)

Take a pan and heat to medium high heat. Add a drop of oil and cook your squash for a few minutes on each side. It does not have to be cooked all the way. remove and reserve. Combine the black beans, salsa, corn and sour cream. Take an oven proof dish and oil bottom and sides. Take a layer of tortilla strips and cover bottom. Layer squash onto tortillas. Spread some of your sour cream and vegetable mixture on top.Sprinkle with cheese. Layer more tortillas on top and repeat until ingredients are used. Bake at 400 degree oven for 10 to 15 minutes or until cheese is melted.

These recipes look fantastic! I think a lot of people forget the versatility of a grill and how much you really can cook outside in the summer months. It's definitely a great option for those of us trying to avoid using the AC but still want that great hot meal! Molly Koch (Weber)
