Roasted Chayote




This is one of the easiest recipes you will find on our site. Chayote (pronounced chay-oh-tay) is a tropical squash that originated in Mexico. We think it tastes best roasted and do remove the seed, even though it is entirely edible. You can make the same recipe quicker by frying. Enjoy this sweet, spicy and juicy vegetable dish with any latin meal and some Ole' Sangria.
