Cazuela

I learned to make this dish while we were living in Chile for a few months. We grow extra butternut squash in our garden just for this recipe. —Louise Schmid, Marshall, Minnesota

    Just a question. How can a recipe with potatoes, carrots, and squash have no carbs in it? Then what about the rice that it is served on?

    I have made this several times, and I varied it a little bit each time, such as using zucchini and sometimes tomatoes. I also have used a whole cut-up chicken instead of just the drumsticks and thighs. I have varied the seasonings, too, such as using turmeric and cumin. It is a versatile recipe and always pleases my family when I serve it.
