Calabacita Con Pollo

Home | Recipes | C


  • 4 Tatuma squash
  • 4 Ripe tomatoes; (medium)
  • 1/2 sm Onion
  • 2 Garlic cloves finely chopped
  • 1 c Corn kernels
  • Salt; (approx. 2 teaspoons)
  • Pepper; (1/2 teaspoon)
  • Oregano; (1/2 to 1 tablespoon)
  • One fryer; (cut up)
  • 4 Serrano peppers; (optional) (4 to 5)


1. Place cut up chicken in a large pot with a little bit of oil (so that it will not stick), sprinkle with salt and cook until it is three-fourths of the way cooked.
2. At this time remove all of the juices that it has released and then add the squash that has been cut up into cubes (approx. 1-2 inches; remove seeds) and then add the sliced tomatoes and sliced onions.
3. Next, add the garlic, corn kernels, serrano peppers, salt and pepper to taste, and oregano. Without stirring, cover and let it simmer about 10 to 15 minutes. When squash is done remove from heat and enjoy.
Hint: Since you add salt twice be sure not to add too much.
