A delicious, Mexican-inspired stew. Sausages are simmered with chayote squash, chillies, tomatoes, black beans, sweetcorn and seasonings. Serve over freshly cooked rice.
Chayote is also known as a christophine, mirlitine, cho cho and vegetable pear. You can find them in Caribbean speciality stores or online.
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! - 24 Apr 2011 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
(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 - 23 Sep 2009 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
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. - 23 Jan 2011 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
