Central American Chop Suey

35 mins (prep 20, cooking 15)
13 ingredients
5-7 servings
This is a traditional christmas side dish in Honduras (usually served along side Nacatamales). You can also add shrimp to the dish but I usually will not do this if I am planning to serve for a large party as shrimp can go bad in 1-2 hrs and it will spoil the entire dish. I also use gloves when peeling the ayote because it has a sticky residue that leaves your hand peeling and very dry. I do not recommend buying the cabbage pre-shredded because when it comes time to stir fry, the cabbage is cut so thin that it burns very quickly. I rather shred with a knife. You can also completly omit the meat and make it vegiterian!
