We love using jicama in keto recipes!
Jicama is a Mexican root vegetable that’s crunchy like a potato, yet slightly sweet tasting similar to an asian pear. The taste is pretty mild so it can easily take on the flavors of seasonings and become super versatile in recipes as a substitute for potatoes and even yummy crunchy dippers for appetizers.
Some of our other favorite keto recipes utilizing jicama are:
The result is a satisfying crunchy snack with a sweet & spicy taste from the jicama and seasonings. If you’ve ever had Mexican-inspired sweet watermelon with chile and lime seasoning, this has the same vibes, except it’s totally keto-friendly!
Tips for making these awesome chile lime jicama sticks:
- I love how you can adjust each ingredient to taste. Want more spice? Add more chile powder until desired. It’s easy to taste and go!
- No need to be intimidated cutting up jicama. I just peeled it using a vegetable peeler and used a sharp knife to cut the jicama into long shaped sticks.
