Ingredients

  • 2 chayote squash (large, peeled and cut into halves)
  • salt and ground black pepper
  • 1 zucchini (cubed)
  • 1 carrot (cubed)
  • cooking spray
  • 3 tablespoons onion (finely chopped)
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic salt
  • 1 tablespoon chipotle salsa
  • 4 pieces panela cheese (may substitute mozzarella)
  • cheese (Melting, such as mozzarella, shredded)

Directions

  1. Boil the squash in water with a little salt until softened. Remove from pan, rinse with cold water, and let cool.
  2. Use a spoon to remove the flesh from the squash, leaving the rind intact. Set aside to use in another recipe.
  3. Spritz a skillet with cooking spray and saute the onion and the carrot. When the onion changes in color, add the garlic salt and the zucchini, along with 1/4 cup water.
  4. Cover the skillet and let cook 3 minutes, until the vegetables become tender and absorb the water.
  5. Taste for seasoning, adding salt and pepper if necessary. Add the chipotle and cook for 2 more minutes. Remove from heat and set aside.
  6. Place a piece of cheese in the bottom of each chayote half. Place the vegetable mixture on top and sprinkle with cheese.
  7. Serve.
