Tatuma squash is best for calabaza con pollo. Tatuma stays firm after cooking. (Tiernita)
Cut squash into1/2 inch thick half slices, Tomatoes into 1/2 inch quarters slices, and serranos will be added whole.
Brown chicken pieces in large pan. Add salt & pepper.
Continue cooking chicken until done all the way through.
Once chicken is cooked & browned add the other ingredients to pan. Add salt & pepper for "sabor".
Simmer for 20 mins. Tatuma squash will stay firm. I prefer not to add any liquid. It produces its own. Serve with corn tortillas.

- 3 tatuma squash ( Mexican Calabaza)
