Best of Season
Chayotes are available year round. When purchasing them, look for chayotes with firm unblemished pale green skins.
How to Prepare Chayotes
Wash, then peel chayotes with a vegetable peeler under running water since chayotes sometimes ooze a sticky substance when peeled. Cut each chayote in half, then remove and discard the seed with a knife or spoon. Cut up the chayotes and use as desired.
Not only is this flavorful low-fat recipe rich in vitamin A from the carrots, but it also provides vitamin C from the chiles.
