Chayote Guisado or Sayote Guisado (Sautéed Chayote) is one of the Filipino recipes found in the recipe database that my family and me loves to eat.
Here in Canada, you can find chayote in most Asian stores and sometimes to known grocery stores like No Frills and Price Choppers. At first, I thought I couldn’t find this chayote in our local community and getting one of it, take me an hour drive to have it.
I was surprise to see chayote in the shelf of our local grocery. The funny thing was, when I’m about to pay this chayote, the cashier didn’t know its name and take us long time to figure out where to get its price. And after a long search, the chayote was under squash-vegetable category and its name was chayote squash.
Anyway, I’m happy that this chayote vegetable is just near by…
