Calabaza squash has a mild taste that makes it work with fish and stew. It may also be pureed and used as a pie filling. The small pumpkin-shaped squash is often substituted for butternut squash or pumpkin in recipes due to availability. Once prepared, the squash may be stored for a week to 10 days. Whole calabaza squashes may be stored for about a month before cooking.
