    theshewolf's Note:

    My mother loves chayotes, but I never have. I had to come up with a recipe that was a good compromise, but accounted for our food allergies. This soup is a big hit with family and friends, and it is really VERY simple. We use Massel "chicken" bouillon for the stock, as it contains no animal products, making this dish vegetarian. Chayotes are also known as merletons.
