I just wanted to thank the submitter SO MUCH for this recipe because finally it is not a chore to eat vegetables. I make this all the time to get my veggies in. I usually add corn and cilantro because they go so well with this dish. I also use whatever cheese I have on hand and the result is always good!
No one went crazy over this. I couldnt get the jicama cooked. I would suggest cutting into very small pieces and cooking them first. The squash and zucchini were very mushy by the time I was finished cooking and the jicama still was too hard. Or leave the jicama out all together. I dont like very spicy things and I still thought this didnt have enough flavor. We also used this to fill tortillas which was a good suggestion by another reviewer. You could make this a good dish with additional seasoning and no jicama.
Yum! I made this as written except for cutting my veggies a little chunkier than called for because I like them barely cooked - and I also put the chopped tomatoes at the very end because I had a tomato-hater in the house. This was my first time eating hot jicama and I really liked it in this. Asedero cheese behaves similarly to an American processed cheese, so subbing with a processed Jack cheese would bring you close to the intentional flavor and texture of this dish if you are unable to get Asedero . Thanks for the recipe - delicious!
I roasted my vegetables instead, drizzled with a bit of olive oil for about 20 min., delicious. Hardo to find the queso asadero, but I used another mexican cheese, and it was delicious.
I was able to find all of the ingredients including the queso asadero. My only change is that I got this "brilliant" idea to make it a little less fattening. Instead of using a cup of cheese, my idea was to just melt a little and then drizzle it over the finished dish. Problem is that it had been a long time since I had bought this kind of cheese and I had forgotten how thick is stays after melted. All I had to thin it out was half n half. So much for less fattening..ha ha. Next time I will use the entire cup of cheese and make as written. We enjoyed this very much. The jicama did stay a bit crunchy as others mentioned but we liked it that way. Almost forgot, my tomatos had gone bad without me knowing it so I substituted with some red bell pepper. This is a great side to go with Mexican meals. Thanks for sharing Linda!
This will be a great side dish for any mexican main entree. I had just some zucchinis, yellow squashs and tomatoes in my fridge. And I looked up on this site, a vegetable side dish using these 3 veggies. This one sounded good since I needed some vegetables to go with a mexican casserole. I gave it a try, using just what I had in my fridge , plus onions and garlic Also added some cilantro). I did not have the cheese it called for either. But it still came out delicious. Thanks you so much for this good recipe.
I didn't have jicama or chayote on hand, so I used quartered brussel sprouts which I sauted about 15 min prior to adding the squash. Delicious!
I really liked the veggies. Lots of flavor. As I started cooking looked like too much seasoning, but tasted really good. My husband is not a big squash fan so he thought they were only ok....does make al ot of veggies...
