" I love to find a different vegetable to serve. Chayote squash like zucchini needs something to add flavor to it. This is one vegetable that is often served in Mexico. This recipe is from the recipe book "Mexican cooking class" by the editors of Consumer Guide. Serve as a side dish with any Mexican recipe."
