A few weeks ago, a friend and I went to this great Mexican restaurant in Manhattan, Crema. I had a chayote cream soup that was out of this world. Ever since, I've been thinking about chayotes.
If you're unfamiliar with them, chayotes are a type of squash, with a mild flavor, crisp texture. They're also a good source of vitamin C.

1) Heat oil in a skillet over medium high heat.
