    Barb Gertz's Note:

    A Chayote dish to add variety to your meal. Note:When I made this I also added some garlic powder along with the salt & pepper. I used mexican blend cheese for the cheese, It was delicious. When boiling the chayote be sure to cook it until really tender so that is is easy to scoop out of the shell. Note: I have found that most of the time the Chayote takes longer to cook than 15 minutes because of size or age.

      SO easy and so good. I too have never made chayote before, but got some in our food co-op. This was a perfect starter recipe. I added the garlic as suggested and it had wonderful flavor!

      I've never cooked chayote before and this was a good recipe to begin with. I allowed the onions to cook a little longer until they were slightly brown to enhance the flavor, added some cumin to the mix, and used shredded cheddar cheese. I also used a potato masher to mash the chayote and onion mix for a smoother consistency. I served the chayote with sour cream and it was a hit with my husband, 2 year old, and myself. I will definately make this again. Thanks!
