Our family lived in Mexico in the early 60's. My brother remembers Jicama Bites and Cucumber Bites using the same seasonings as Coconut Bites. We use to buy these off the street vendors. I know the seasonings sound like a turnoff, but they're really good and a good conversation piece at get-togethers. Guessing on the number of servings.
- After getting off the shell of a coconut, break it into pieces. (Peel jicama and cut into slices as well as slicing a cucumber - choose what you want.).
- Sprinkle lemon juice on each piece.
- Sprinkle chile powder on each piece.
- Good chilled.
DH enjoyed these - he said he thoughthe was IN MEXICO! ;) I did accidentally make this using lime instead of lemon...but I think it was ok...no one seemed to mind! Fun appetizer for a Mexico themed meal! PAC 2007
