When I found this recipe I went shopping for ingredients right away. Luckily I found frozen chili pepper leaves (dahon ng sili) at the Filipino store. Oh my god! Every spoonful of this wonderful tinola cured me of my homesickness. It felt like I was home again. Thank you so much, you have no idea how good this dish made me feel.

yum. i added about 7 cups of water and 3 tablespoons of fish sauce. 3 tablespoons of fish sauce was a bit too much. added "magic sarap" (a powder seasoning) that is popular here in the philippines. the magic sarap powder helped the flavor immensely. masarap (tagalog for delicious).

We Love This! To think so few ingredients make a dish this tasty. I was looking for a recipe to use a chayote. I never ate one before and didn't know how it would taste. That squash is very good also. The only thing I used differently is garlic and ginger paste instead of chopping them each up. I find it easier. And I have to say I tried using 3/4 cup of water and found the broth to strong/salty tasting. So I added another 1/2 cup of water and this tasted so perfect to me. Thank you so much for placing this recipe here for us.
