SNACKS: The enemy to anyone who is watching their figure. Sure, you can bring an apple to work, but are you really going to choose that over the chocolate snacks in the break room? I don’t think so!
The snacks that we made are crunchy, salty, refreshing, cheap and low calorie. Talk about a win-win. Snack away my friends!
– One bulb of Jicama, peeled and cut into sticks
– 1 tsbp lime juice
– 2 tbsp fresh cilantro
– ½ tsp garlic powder
– 1 tsp sugar
– ½ tsp salt
– ½ tsp paprika
– ¼ tsp chili pepper
- Combine salt, sugar, cilantro, garlic powder, paprika and chili pepper into a bowl.
- Coat jicama with lime juice
- Sprinkle jicama with spice blend.
- Snack away!
- Keep refrigerated
*The cool thing about Jicama is that they are a blank slate. If you want a sweet snack, try cinnamon and sugar. Feel free to mix up the spices for some variety.*
