This was very good but I did change the recipe a bit. I had just returned from Guatemala and knew they never used vinegar but mostly lime juice. I replace the vinegar with lime juice. I also used 1/2 teas. of red pepper flakes and added 1/4 of a chopped onion. It had just enough bite to be great and the lime juice worked very well. It was a hit, will make it again. It makes a different vegetab;e side dish.

Add 1/2 thin sliced onion and sautee until fragrant and brown with the gralic before adding the chokos. Substitute lime juice for the vinegar and you are set!

This is good. I love chayote, but this was my first time cooking it. I ended up needing some more cooking time - probably about 15 inutes total. Thanks for the recipe!
