This was my first time trying Chayote and it was pretty good. I did not know if it needed to be peeled or not so I peeled it.I cooked it exactly as recipes stated and sprinkled extra red pepper on top before serving.

This was my first time trying chayote squash and I enjoyed this recipe. I used less red pepper flakes, sesame oil instead of butter and chopped sweet onion instead of garlic. Also added a handful of toasted cashews before serving. The sesame oil gave it a greater Asian flare!

I just made this. I gotta say, absolutely wonderful :) I would also say use a bit less red pepper if you don't like spicy.

This was so good… had like an asian zing to it. Mine didn't soften all that much but I didn't mind the crunchiness.
