This was my first time cooking with chayotes (or chokos as they're known in Oz). The soup made a very healthy and inexpensive lunch. I did add a bit more cilantro after the initial blending, as I felt it was a bit lacking in flavour. Also, watch the cooking time. Most of my liquid had evaporated after 15 minutes, and I did have to add a bit more, and I was cooking on low heat. Even though they're bland in flavour, I'd definitely use the chayote again, just for the health benefits. I guess it's a bit like tofu in that it takes on other flavours very well. Thanks for posting! Made for PAC Spring 2008.
