Really good flavor, I went a little overboard on the chili powder because my husband really likes hot foods, a little too hot for me but he claimed it was the best thing he had eaten since the lemon soup in Thailand (he judges how good food is by how much he sweats while eating it) When I make it for guests I will follow the recipe. Always looking for new ways to cook carrots and chayotes, they are cheap here in Nicaragua.

Very, very good! You prob could get away w/not using any butter I bet. It IS spicy and sweet, but not as spicy as you think reading off the ingredients! Will be a keeper and made frequently since I eat a lot of veggies these days!

Easy, great taste, inexpensive, and good for you. There's also a lot of room for subtlety in this recipe - in the choice of pepper and hot sauce, and the fruit. I had some fresh pineapple, so I added that in place of the pineapply juice and the sugar. I might try it with just a touch of thyme.

We liked these very much. I made them to go with my "Jamaican themed dinner" tonight and they were a hit and soooo easy to make. Great side dish for anytime. Thank you for sharing this recipe with us.

I used baby carrots and it was a big hit when carrots are usually only tolerated if accompanying a roast.

This is a solid recipe and makes for a unique twist on what can sometimes be a mundane side of carrots. The incorporation of cumin and chili powder didn't work for my personal taste.....but that's just me and I'm still glad I tried them! Made for ZWT5. Thank you for posting!

These were really good. Very different. I used baby carrots and cooked them a little longer because they weren't sliced. Made for ZWT5- Epicurean Queens.

Wow, wow and yum! We loved these carrots, what a nice change of pace. A little sweet and a little heat, they were terrific. I made them exactly as the recipe stated and they were perfect. Made for ZWT 5 :)
