"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." — Wayward

My family really liked this stew. I wouldn't normally have bought chayote but I recieved some as part of a food co-op and had no idea what to do with them! When I saw this recipe I knew it would go over well...and it did!
Too hot! One two inch jalapeño will do it. Otherwise, we liked it. But, next time we will serve it over rice.
(MY FIRST CHAYOTE RECIPE ATTEMPT )Very good! I used sausage links, cooked, then sliced. Had no beans or corn, but I did use lentils. Very good, I served with rice. Will make again next time chayotes are on sale :)
This was delicious! With just 2 of us, there was quite a bit for leftovers but this was even better when it was heated up for the 2nd and 3rd time. Very flavorful. I followed the recipe except added an extra jalapeno as we like our food spicy.
I was happy to see a recipe for chyote, which came in my CSA box. I followed the recipe except for using fresh tomatoes instead of canned (because that's all I had). It came out great.
Instead of Italian sausage I used 1 lb of ground turkey seasoned with Penzy's breakfast sausage seasoning plus fennel seed. I only had two chayote. Used 2 serrano (seeds/ribs and all) instead of jalapeno. Otherwise, kept to the recipe (well, I was heavy handed with the chili powder and thyme). This is fantastic. Be careful not to overcook the chayote, it has such a delightful texture. I really made this highly seasoned, and in doing so the sweet, refreshing "cucumbery" flavor of the chayote was lost. That was my fault, not that of the recipe. Still, the texture works and I'll be happily eating these leftovers and making this again and again.
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. Thanks for posting!
Very good! Used mild peppers instead of jalapenos for the kids. Would be better with the heat from jalapenos.
