that's right i said it CHIPS!!!!!!
i was bored earlier this evening and decided to do some culinary experimentation and i came up with this. a little sweeter than potato chips but they really helpp with the craving for potato chips (i am a salt person so i crave them more than dessers). i would love people's feedback.
2 cups jicama
3 tbsp olive oil
chili powder, as much as you want for spiciness (i used 2 tbsp)
1 tbsp cumin
1 tsp white pepper
Preheat oven to 425 degrees.
Slice the jicama as thin as possible. mix oil, chili powder, cumin and white pepper in a large mixing bowl. add jicama and toss until jicama is covered. Place the jicama on a baking sheet in one layer. Bake in oven until browned at the edges. Remove from oven. Using a paper towl dab off any excess oil (don't dab too hard or you'll also remove all the spices). Let cool and set about 15 minutes.
serves 2 (the Jicama shrinks considerably in cooking)
