I'd had raw jicama before, and I grabbed one on a whim. However, with the weather cooling, I didn't want something cold. Then I thought about the trend of making everything into fries. Is it still a trend? I'm never able to keep up!

This root vegetable's slightly sweet and highly crispy. In fact, it brings an entirely new level of crispiness at half the calories and carbs of your usual fries. Anyway, I thought I'd make some chipotle jicama fries since I was on a bit of a chipotle kick after making the Chipotle Bacon Corn Salad. So much yum!

What's the most unusual food you've made into fries?

    1. I used to eat jicama raw all the time (when we got it), and then we tried roasting and making fries with it, and I have to say, I like this way a lot better. :)

      I also have a salad (http://morselsoflife.com/jicama-persimmon-miso-salad.html) and slaw (http://morselsoflife.com/jicama-slaw.html) you might enjoy.

      Let me know what you think once you give them a try! :)
