“At the end of the growing season, we always have a few acorn squash remaining," says Laurina Jo Tucker of La Marque, Texas. "I usually bake the squash with butter and honey, but decided to try something more savory and I came up with this.”

Ingredients

  • 1 medium acorn squash
  • 3/4 cup cubed fully cooked ham
  • 1/2 cup shredded pepper Jack cheese
  • 1/3 cup chopped sweet red pepper
  • 1/4 cup medium salsa
  • 2 green onions, chopped
  • 1/8 teaspoon pepper

Directions

  1. Cut squash in half; discard seeds. Place squash cut side down in a microwave-safe dish. Cover and microwave on high for 10-12 minutes or until tender.
  2. Meanwhile, in a small bowl, combine the remaining ingredients. Turn squash cut side up. Stuff with ham mixture. Cover and microwave on high for 2-3 minutes or until heated through.
