    Howdy friends:
    tried some Chayote Squash. sliced them about half an inch. tossed in hot olive oil with fresh minced garlic, some dried chipotle flakes, ground black pepper and salt. when the garlic began to carmelize, I drizzled with an aged balsamico that had a sweet/sour profile. cooked till the balsamico was reduced to just glazing them. they were tender crisp and pretty good, but not great.

    seeking a killer recipe for them as a nice side dish.
    thanks
    Mike

    They good cold in salads , sliced thin, tossed with lime juice and a little olive oil. I first had it served in a salad with avocado. If you have a favorite stew or curry, they absorb a lot of flavor. A little mild for my taste buds alone.

  4. Half them, half bake them, scoop out shells, mix inside with bread crumbs, cheese, chopped shrimp, seasoning. Top with cheese, bread crumbs, bake til tops are crusty.

    My granny grew them and did something similar to chefjeff, but with onions and no shrimp or cheese. I bet his are better. They always seems kind of bland to me.
