    Excellent mexican kick to this sometimes bland vegetable. I will let you know if my grown kids like it.

    I used pico de gallo in place of the salsa because it's already loaded with cilantro, it worked out well. Made it as a side dish to go with bison burgers which worked out well except it made for a heavy meal. Next time maybe I will add meat to the rice, the filling is versatile that way.

    Tasty, easy. My husband really liked it. I included the scooped out squash, and used leftover rice rather than making it separately. Would probably add a clove or two of fried up garlic, maybe a jalapeño next time.

    It was great, but found it to take awhile to prepare because there were a number of steps. We’re meat eaters, so I added ground turkey, which made it last another night, but it’s not necessary for that amazing taste.

    Husband and I loved it. Substituted the rice for brown rice and sliced fresh avocado on top

    Quite good...loved the concept! I used 1/2 the rice and instead of “saving” the insides of the squash I incorporated into the rice mixture. I also added chopped red and bell pepper to the rice mix and topped w avocado and pickled sweet n spicy jalapeño! Delicious!

    Very tasty! Used canned corn & brown rice, plus enchilada sauce instead of salsa. Turned out great and a nice easy meal to whip up.
