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.
