Ingredients

6 ounces of roasted tomatoes (can use canned fire roasted tomatoes, or roast whole tomatoes on stovetop or under broiler until skin begins to blacken, do not remove skin but process whole)
1 pound chayotes
1 clove garlic, chopped
2 tablespoons chopped onion
1 large green Anaheim chile (stem and seeds removed and discarded), chopped
Pinch red chile pepper flakes
1/4 cup water
Salt to taste
1/4 cup roughly chopped cilantro
1/4 cup finely grated Monterey Jack cheese

Instructions

1.Peel and cut the chayotes: The peel is tough and inedible when cooked, so peel the chayotes completely. (This may take a little doing, as the folds in the chayotes can make it difficult.) Cut the chayotes into 1/4-inch wide, 2 inch long julienned strips, including the core.
2.Purée the roasted tomatoes and the garlic in a blender: set aside.
3.Sauté onions and green chiles, add tomato and chili flakes: Heat oil in a large skillet on medium heat. Add the chopped onion and green chiles. Cook on medium heat until just soft, about 3-4 minutes. Add the tomato mixture, red chile flakes, and continue to cook 3 minutes more.
