Ingredients: 1/2 of a medium Jicama
Seasonings of choice
Peanut Oil (or other oil suitable for high heat frying)
How To Prepare: Peel and rinse 1/2 of one globe of jicama. Slice paper thin, using one of those "as seen on TV" type vegetable slicers if you can. They give you the thinnest slices. Otherwise use a very sharp knife and slice carefully and thinly. Blot excess moisture from slices.

Use enough oil to cover bottom of large skillet and to cover the slices, about 1/4" deep should do it. Heat oil, but do NOT OVERHEAT.

Add jicama slices in a single layer. You won't get them all done in one batch. Fry each batch until you have browning around the edges, then remove to paper towels to drain while the next batch frys.

The chips shrink considerably. While still warm sprinkle them with pepper, salt, low carb seasonings, parmesan cheese, whatever you like, but lightly.

If you make the slices thin enough and fry carefully these chips come out so delicate and crunchy. Really too delicate for dipping unless you just use a thin Ranch dip or something.

I am going to try deep frying them in the future and will experiment with some brown Sugar Twin and cinnamon for a sweet crunchy snack as well.

Positive aspects of the product (pros): Fabulous Flavor
Cons: Time consuming

This is the best replacement to potato chips ever. I have tried two seasonings that have been so good I wanted to slap my grama. Cinnamon made a great sweet treat. A seasoning that is a little hard to find called Serindipity was so wonderful. A little hot and gave the chips a kick.

Positive aspects of the product (pros): none
Cons: too soggy!

I liked the idea, & it did get me to buy a jicama & at least try something new. I used a large food processor that had a chips slicer to slice mine thin. I used extra virgin olive oil to fry them in. They just came out too soggy. I tried to leave them in longer to make them crisp up some, but had no luck.

Positive aspects of the product (pros): none! these are great :)

These are excellent! The other poster that used olive oil had a problem because olive oil isnt a high heat oil. You really must use peanut oil, and get it very hot! Cooking it longer with a low heat oil will not work... but it will make it greasy..blech.

Again, great "chips" or a sub for french fries Smile but ya gotta use the peanut oil Smile
