This recipe can be prepared in either a conventional oven at 350 degrees F., or in a microwave oven, on high, for faster preparation.

Wash, peel and dice the onions, and place in a large covered baking dish.  Peel, wash and crush the garlic, and add to the baking dish.  Add the oregano, fennel seed, and hot sauce.  Mix well, cover, and cook until the onions begin to become semi transparent (about 5 minutes in the microwave oven).

While the onions are cooking, thoroughly wash the chayote squash.  Cut each chayote squash lengthwise in half, and cut each half into bite sized pieces.  Add to the covered baking dish when the onions are cooked.

Wash and peel the potatoes, and cut into bite sized pieces.  Add to the covered baking dish and mix well.

Place the covered baking dish back into the oven and cook until the potatoes and chayote squash are tender.  Mix occasionally to make sure that the potatoes and chayote squash are uniformly cooking.

When the potatoes and squash begin to become tender, particularly the chayote squash skin), add the crushed tomatoes, mix well, and continue cooking for another 20 minutes to blend all the flavors, or a little longer if the chayote squash and potatoes need more cooking.

When the chayote squash and potatoes are finished cooking, remove from the oven, serve and enjoy with a large tossed salad.

The above recipe is in keeping with God's creation intent (Genesis 1:29-31):  'Then God said, "I give you every seed-bearing plant on the face of the whole earth and every tree that has fruit with seed in it. They will be yours for food.  And to all the beasts of the earth and all the birds of the air and all the creatures that move on the ground-- everything that has the breath of life in it-- I give every green plant for food." And it was so.   God saw all that he had made, and it was very good.' (NIV)  Let no animal suffer or die that we may live!
