Lisa told me it is a type of squash, and is usually used in soups. I'd already had tacos on the menu for this week, so I peeled and diced the chayote, sauteed it in olive oil with some garlic and diced onions, and combined it with shredded chicken and a little cheddar cheese in tortillas. I rolled the tortillas in a 9x12" pan, and sprinkled more cheese on top. Baked for about 45 minutes at 350 degrees, and voila! Baked Chicken Chayote Tacos!
Chayote is usually cooked, but can be eaten raw. Either way, it's a great source of amino acids and Vitamin C.
