Recipe from my family in Costa Rica. Very healthy, can add any other vegetables and seasonings (tomatoes or soup base) or top little white cooked rice to make it more filling. Add a little lemon when serving to give it a little zest.
- 1 1⁄2 lbs oxtails or 1 1⁄2 lbs beef, for stews and soups
- 1 stalk chopped celery

- 1 small chopped onion (optional)
- 3 chayotes
- 2 cassava
- 3 potatoes
- 3 carrots
- 2 sweet potatoes
- 4 pieces of frozen corn on the cob
- salt (to your liking)
- Fill large soup pot half way with water. Add meat and optional onions. Boil for 5 minutes. Cook on med/low for 1 hours Meanwhile, peel Chayote, Yuca, sweet potatoes, carrots, potatoes. Chop all to desired size. Prefarable larger 1 - 1 1/2 size cubes. Sweet potatoes cook faster and the may be cut larger than the rest of the vegetables.
