Stir Fry Pad Thai Noodles with Chayote

Stir Fry Pad Thai Noodles with Chayote is a quick recipe that can be rustled up literally within minutes. This recipe was an excuse to use up the chayote I bought the other day and I must say, although this was the first time I had chayote in a stir fry, it actually works! I’ll be definitely making it again. The peanut butter makes the stir fry creamy and tones down the spiciness of the dish as I used both chili flakes and sriracha. Feel free to make it less spicier if that is what you prefer @sarchakra
