Chayote Squash & Corn Soup

Servings: 6
Preparation Time: 30 minutes

This soup is a traditional Costa Rican recipe given to me by my sons' Grandmother in 1969 before her Grandsons were born. They both loved this soup as children.

1 chayote squash, diced small
1 can corn, drained
1 tsp chicken bouillon granules
5 ozs evaporated milk
1 1/2 cups water
1/2 cup sweet green peppers, diced fine
1/8 tsp black pepper, coarsely ground salt, to taste
3 tbsp cilantro, minced fine

Bring chayote, water & chicken buillion to a boil and simmer on low for 10 minutes. Add remaining ingredients (except for the cilantro) and bring to a boil. If the soup appears too thick, add more water. Simmer on low for 15 minutes. Add cilantro just before serving.

You may substitute sweet red peppers, or combine with green peppers for color. Lawry's Seasoning Salt may be substituted for regular salt.
