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!

This was my first time trying chayote, and the recipe turned out very well. I followed Barb's suggestion and added some garlic powder; it was a good addition. It took longer than 15 minutes (maybe 25?) to boil the chayotes, but mine were maybe bigger than normal. This is a nice, uncomplicated recipe, and I recommend it to people who want to see what chayote tastes like. Next time I make it, though, I'll probably add some more spices and maybe some other veggies. Thanks for posting...I had NO idea how to cook these things until I saw your recipe!
