    This was delicious! No Chayote on hand but I thought it was so tasty and can easily be made vegetarian too

    We really enjoyed this dish! It was my first experience with chayote, so I looked up how best to peel and prep it. I added some chopped celery leaves for the simmer, for color. Also, my wife isn't a fan of heat, so I used an Anahaim pepper in place of the chilis. A great dinner for a chilly night!
