"This recipe started as an experiment using chayote. It received unexpected raves at the table and is now in regular rotation at our house. We like this served over rice."

  1. Place a large saucepan over medium-high heat; cook the sausage in the skillet until browned; remove the sausage to a plate lined with paper towels. Add the olive oil. onion, and garlic to the skillet; cook and stir until the onions are translucent, 3 to 5 minutes. Return the sausage to the pan along with the chayote squash and jalapeno peppers; cook and stir until the squash begins to soften, 10 to 15 minutes. Stir in the tomatoes, black beans, corn, thyme, and chili powder; season with salt and pepper. Cook until completely heated through, about 10 minutes more.

Too hot! One two inch jalapeño will do it. Otherwise, we liked it. But, next time we will serve it over rice.

Great Chayote recipe! Perfect for a chilly autumn night. I substituted chorizo (for italian sausage) and used 1 small can chopped jalapenos instead of fresh. Nice and spicy, great texture. Thank...
