    ms_bold's Note:

    This is an adopted recipe that I have finally had the opportunity to try. The combination of the lime with the chili salt on the crisp jicama is really good. I used a chipotle chili pepper and found the ration of salt to heat to be just right. The original posted tried this at a sample table in Whole Foods Market.

      Wow is right! Delicious! After seeing this recipe I headed to the Asian market in Philadelphia this morning and picked up some wonderful jicama. This stuff is addictive! I used a whole teaspoon of chili powder to the tablespoon of kosher salt. Mmm.. the cold and crunchy jicama with the lime juice and seasonings was very satisfying.

      WOW! This is good! I like jicama but never know how to use it. This would be a great snack just to have around to munch on instead of potato chips. I used 1/4 tsp. chili powder but next time I'm going for the full amount. I can't wait to go back to the store for another jicama. Thanks for posting this!
