Ingredients

Ingredients

  • 3 Cups Chopped Jicama (length-wise)
  • 1 tbsp Olive Oil Extra Virgin
  • 1 tsp Salt
  • 1/2 tsp Paprika -

Instructions

Prep – Work:

  • Peel and Chop about 3 cups of Jicama lengthwise. I used about 1/3 portion of a large Jicama.
  • Line the baking tray with foil or parchment paper.
  • Preheat the oven to 400 deg F.

Steps:

  • Spread the chopped jicama in the baking tray.
  • Drizzle olive oil, salt, and paprika and mix well. You can mix all these in a separate bowl and then spread the veggie in the baking tray too.
  • Bake them for about 15 minutes and toss the veggies once and bake again for 15 more minutes or until they are crunchy.
  • That’s it. Yummy Jicama fries are ready.
  • Serve with BBQ sauce or ketchup.

Notes

  • I went with a simple spice mix and added only salt and paprika. But you can include cumin powder or any other favorite spice mix. The spice mix that I used for popcorn ole will be a great combo too.
  • Adjust the salt and spice as per your preference.
  • You can chop the jicama into thin slices and use the same spice mix and bake the same like chips too.
