Yellow Squash Taco Casserole

This is an adaptation of a pin I saw on Pinterest.

4-6 Yellow squash cubed.
1 lb. ground beef or turkey
taco seasoning
1 can diced tomatoes with green chile - drained
1 can black beans rinsed and drained
2 cups shredded cheese (I used Colby Jack)
1 small onion - chopped
1/2 bag Doritos chips (about 2-3 cups crushed)

Prepare taco meat according to directions.  Once done, add the black beans and tomatoes.  Set aside.

Meanwhile, saute squash and onion in a little olive oil until about half done cooking. (You may need to steam them with a little water and put the lid on)

Once the squash and onion are barely tender, pour them into a 9x13 glass baking pan.  Sprinkle half the cheese over the squash, followed by half of the crushed Doritos.

Next, layer the meat/bean/tomato mixture on the squash.

Sprinkle remaining cheese over the meat, followed by the rest of the crushed Doritos.

Bake at 350 for half hour.

Serve with lettuce, tomato, sour cream and your other favorite taco toppings!
