“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.” - by modestalmond

"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 ..." See morewas to add 1 jalapeno pepper when cooking instead of the red pepper flakes.
