Chayote is a zucchini-like Mexican vegetable.
Also, I was intrigued by the Stuffed Chayote Recipes I had seen, for example: http://www.myrecipes.com/recipe/special-stuffed-chayte-squash.
All I did was:
Boil the whole chayote in water for about 15 minutes.
This made it semi-soft. I sliced the chayote in half, length wise.
Then, I used a spoon to scoop out the center of each half.
I saved the pulp in a separate container.
Then I gathered a can of mushrooms, salsa, and carrots & peas.
Got some leftover onion out of the frig and diced a small amount.
Got some bread crumbs out of the freezer.
Got the imitation bacon bits out of the cupboard.
I mixed a full spoonful from each of the cans of mushrooms, salsa, and carrots & peas with the pulp I saved.
Added a good dollop of bacon bits.
Stirred the whole mixture together.
I added spoonfuls of the mixture to each half of the chayote.
Topped the mixture off with diced onions and bread crumbs.
Microwaved for about five minutes on high.
I liked it. It reminded me of my mom's stuffed zucchini.
