Mmmmm this is so good! It is a wonderful flaky pastry and tasty meat filling. From a book (1973) given to me by my son he collects vintage cook books, does quite well. This book was not old enough for him, I'm glad because it has some great recipes!! Latin American Cooking, a treasury of recipes from the South American countries, Mexico and the Caribbean. I will be posting more from it as we try them out. (20 minutes chill time not included in cook time) I cut very small wedges (12) and served it as an appetizer.
These sound delicious, this is posted by request via email for "Rachel", they sound so good I may try them myself soon. From "Latin American Cooking, A treasury of recipes from the South American countries, Mexico and the Caribbean" Susan Bensusan.
In Mexico you can buy these on just about every street corner. They are usually round slices heavily laden with chili. Very refreshing. When you buy a Jicama make sure it is very firm and free from mold patches. When you slice it open the flesh must be white otherwise it is too old. This is a very low calorie recipe, it fact it is low everything!
