For all of you fries lovers, this one is for you. I know I sure used to be one, and every once in a while, I get a little craving for them. But, I can guarantee you these jicama chili “cheese” fries hit the spot just as much, and then some. No greasy fat coming out of the pores after eating them. No worries or guilt about the added calories, no frying oil, no heart clogging ingredients. These fries actually feed your body! Go figure. That kind of sounds like an oxymoron..fries that can feed your body? That is the beauty of raw foods! Since they are not heated, their vitamins, minerals and most important enzymes stay in tact, nourishing your body bite by bite!

Further Food Nutritionist Commentary:

Jicama is a root vegetable which is low-calorie, low-fat and high fiber food. It mostly contain water (about 90 percent) and yet a cup of it contains more than 6 grams of fiber! This recipe is a guilt free pleasure dish for those who love french fries! You will get a clean, refreshing and crispy taste when eating jicama!

    I found Jicama Sticks at my local Trader Joes and had never tried them before. They remind me of water chestnuts! Very refreshing. I made these 2 ways: fresh (coated in spices) and baked in the oven at 350 for about 20 minutes. They don’t taste like fries but they are strangely addictive! Refreshing and perfect for a summer side dish. My daughter liked the cumin flavor – she said it tasted like chili! I think next time I will try it with olive oil, garlic powder, and salt. I like these because you can change the flavor profile in so many ways with different spice/herb combinations.

      Hi Stef!
      I’m so glad to hear you liked them, they’re such an addicting snack! Even without baking them they’re great, and the versatility of jicama is just awesome! So glad to know that Trader Joes sells them I shop there all the time and never saw them, I’ll be keeping my out from now on. 🙂
