Cheesy Calabacitas

Cheesy Calabacitas is a dish of summer squash with onions and green chiles, and it’s the perfect side dish to make with zucchini. My recipe omits the corn and/or tomatoes that are sometimes used in Calabacitas which makes this a low-carb side dish!

And this Calabacitas recipe can certainly be used for a vegetable side dish, but when I have a lot of zucchini and summer squash I’d happily eat a big plate of this for a meatless lunch or dinner.


  •  1 onion, chopped
  • 4 medium zucchini or yellow summer squash (see notes)
  • 2 T olive oil
  • 1 T minced garlic
  • 2 tsp. Spike Seasoning
  • two 4 oz. cans diced green chiles (see notes)
  • 2 cups grated Mexican cheese blend (more or less to taste)
  • salt and fresh ground black pepper to taste
