"A delicious and easy change of pace from the regular side dish. Chayote is a squash and tastes somewhat like zucchini. You can use green or white chayote. Add spice if desired, jalapeno is delicious."
Hmm. None of these ingredients are on sale today.

chayotes, peeled and cut in half
salt and ground black pepper to taste
American cheese, cut into pieces
I omitted the eggs and made this as a side dish for dinner. It was somewhat bland for our taste and the chayote softer than we would have liked, which would have been fine for breakfast. I will make it again and substitute pepperjack cheese and boiling the chayote for 10 minutes or less. Or I might add sharp cheddar and a diced jalapeno. This is a great jumping off point for learning how to use chayote.
Thought this was delish! I swapped the American for cheddar cheese but do think pepper jack would be yummy too. It reminded me of a cross between a hash and omelette, although the onion made it taste sweeter (vidalia). Would definitely make it again.
