This was really good. i recieved 2 HUGE jicamas today in my Bountiful Baskets basket and needed something to use them in. I had to make another plate because my daughters and I devoured them before I could them in the frig. I used Chipotle chili powder and it was wonderful....I love chipotle anything! The lime added the right amount of sour and the sugar wasn't too much. We are having a BBQ for Memorial Day and I will have a plate of these on the table.......
