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!

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Peel the jicama, cut into manageable size pieces and cut into pieces about 3"x1/2"x1/2" Arrange on a paper towel, Sprinkle with lime juice, Sprinkle with chili powder Arrange on a platter and serve ice cold.

These are wongerful! They're crisp and delicious! The lime and chili powder go great, this is a new snack for us! We love jicama, and this is a very good way to spice it up.

Wonderful when one wants something in the frige for easy snacks, DH is trying to quit smoking, so I'm keeping all kinds of veggie snacks around for him. Can't keep enough of these in for him. Thanks Bergy, I love them too!!

I know this is good because I have enjoyed Jicama this way for several years. When we first moved to New Mexico we visited a Swap Meet in Las Cruces where they sell a "fruit cup" it includes Jicama,watermelon, cantaloupe, pineapple and cucumber all cut in strips and sprinkled with lime and red chile. The only difference is they also add salt to the red chile. I now enjoy apples, pears, most any type of fruit with the lime, red chile and salt sprinkled over them!! Betty Jo Weathersby
