“This recipe will fool you into thinking you're eating a cream-based soup. It's spicy, different, and really pretty. It's extremely versatile. Tastes best when it's made at least a day in advance.”

Please Read! I have no food allergies, that I know of, but my hand took about 3 hours to heal after peeling these! "The flesh of chayote will remain firm if the skin is left on during cooking. You can peel chayote before or after cooking, but if you peel it before it may secrete a sticky substance that might irritate your skin. This substance disappears during cooking. To peel chayote before cooking, wear gloves or oil your hands or peel under running water."

We really liked this soup. I had 2 chayotes and had no idea how to fix them when I found this recipe. The soup was creamy and delicious. I served it 2 days after I made it. The only change I made was to add 1 jalapeno pepper when cooking instead of the red pepper flakes. I served it with a sprinkling of fresh ground parmesian cheese and a couple of homemade croutons.
