My New Favorite Snack- Jicama Chips and a Giveaway

 

Yep.

Who the heck needs Tostitos? Not us.

I’ll make this quick because I don’t want to waste your time and you pretty much just have to make these as soon as possible.

Oh, first though, it’s been way too long since the last Flat Kitty Friday post, thought I’d show you who tried to steal some dessert from me last night.

IMG_3601

Silly guy. He should know I don’t share chocolate, even if it’s unsweetened. Oops. I better give you that recipe for those no sugar added dark chocolate cups, huh?

Coming up soon.

 

We had a lazy family morning around here. It was marvelous. Made some Coach’s Oats pancakes for the boys.

Can you guess what this is supposed to be?

IMG_3623

Ha ha.

 

Anyhoo….

 

Let’s get right to it, yes?

Yes.

Um, so I tried the whole kohlrabi thing after all your suggestions. I have to be honest. Not a big fan of the stuff raw.

I’m not a big fan of jicama raw either, but roasting it is a whole different story. Shocker.

I’ve posted about roasted jicama before. If you haven’t done it you need to.

This is pretty much the exact same recipe, but I’ve sliced them a little thinner and made them without any spray.

Look at this beauty.

Don’t you want to eat it up?

Me too.

 

Here you go:

Roasted Jicama Chips

(STUFT Detox approved)

1 jicama (or more if you’re feeling like living dangerously)

a little olive oil (optional)

seasoning ideas: Trader Joe’s Everyday Seasoning, Pink Sea Salt, Garlic Salt, Garlic, Cayenne, Paprika, Mixed Peppercorns, or this Chef Marla’s Super Hot “Stuff”.

IMG_3551

Directions:

Peel and slice the jicama.

Place sliced jicama on either nonstick aluminum foil or parchment paper on a cookie sheet.

Season as desired. (I used all the ones listed above.)

Bake at 400 convection for about 20-25 minutes. (Not sure of the exact time. I tend to burn things.)

And voila.

IMG_8952

Yep, I’ve added them to salads

IMG_8965

, and also used them as “chips” on the side with some chicken lettuce wraps.

IMG_8942IMG_8944

Obviously my favorite way to eat them is with guacamole. I’m biased and love them with date night guacamole, but when I’m in a pinch (or just lazy) this Chunky Spicy guacamole from Trader Joe’s is pretty darn good.

IMG_8954

Yep, dug that out of the trash to show you a picture. So classy. It looks like this though.

IMG_8966

Smile

These are also great with salsa and whatever else you can find to dip them in.

Yep.

Try it.

One more picture just because.

IMG_3392

And…..

I totally forgot to mention in my last post about Father’s Day Gift ideas that Stehly Buffalo Jerky would be a great one.

I guess I forgot how “manly” jerky is.

IMG_8092

So, to make it up to you, I want to give some away.

Let’s say three packs to one winner.

To enter: Leave me a comment here with your favorite “chip” (or chip type thing, homemade or other) and dip (same thing- homemade or other) combo.

I’ll randomly pick a winner Saturday night and announce on Sunday. Giveaway will be open until 8 PM PST Saturday, June 15th.

 

Happy Friday!

Enjoy your day!

  14. 14

    parsnip chips dipped in ketchup is my newest obsession!! but seriously good ole chips and salsa are also a favorite.

  15. 15
    Pam says:

    If I want to eat a lot of crunchy stuff with dip, I’ll go for carrots (as a mock chip) and salsa as my go to dip. Or, the tomoto and basil TJ’s hummus is awesome as well

  16. 16
    Angelina says:

    I’m a sucker for the basket of chips at Mexican restaurants. I probably asked the waiter two or three times to refill my chips and salsa. How embarrassing. Lol! That being said I have to stick the the original— tortilla chips (salted of course) and a good chunky guacamole and/or roasted tomato salsa. Oh man. Who’s down for some Mexican food?

  17. 17

    oh man, I can go to town with tortilla chips and salsa….I honestly rarely buy them because I know it’s a weakness! ;) I love the brand “beanitos” and also the saltless organic tortilla chips from TJ’s though the best – I also make my own salsa most of the time. Yum!

    Mona says:

    Favorite chips – sweet potato chips roasted with smoked paprika! Favorite dip – different kids of salsas thrown together:)

    michelle kim says:

    I love anything with guacamole… I guess corn tortilla chips would be the best for that. Totally going to try these jicama ones!

  22. 22
    kolya says:

    I love lentil chips, or sweet potatoe chips!!

  29. 29
    Lacey says:

    It’s a tie for me! I really enjoy banana chips dipped in almond butter as a snack but sweet potato chips with fresh guacamole are my weakness! I just love the beautiful color combo (orange topped with a vibrant lime green). Eat the rainbow as they say! ;)

  30. 30
    Kathy says:

    Chip, Chip Hooray!!!

    I enjoy Fritos *yes, they are bad but I only have them with chili or salsa and sour cream* so that makes them ok right?

    Otherwise, Iove a major plate of macho nachos….chips under a heavenly cloud of good flavors….sheesh I better go to bed b/c I am making myself hungry! HA!

  31. 31
    Emily says:

    Favorite chip: the scoop shaped tortilla chips. They’re the perfect shape to fit my favorite dip: extra chunky spicy mango salsa!

  32. 32
    Alicia says:

    I love making apple chips sprinkled with cinnamon and I like dipping them in this strawberry cool whip recipe my mom and I make! But I absolutely love eating them by themselves!

  33. 33
    Erica says:

    mmmmm- I love chips and guacamole is any form. That TJs version looks great. We do a good cheaters version around here (http://www.self.com/fooddiet/recipes/2013/05/guilt-free-guacamole) with vegetables and tortilla chips

  34. 34

    Zucchini chips with unsweetened ketchup is heavenly! Trying jicama chips next though!

  35. 35
    Kristin Wallace says:

    My weakness is definitely sweet potato chips with onion dip! It might sound like a strange combination but it is DELICIOUS!

  36. 36
    Katie M says:

    Raw carrots are my favorite “chip”. Seriously, I could eat pounds of carrots everyday because they are so tasty! (But when I eat more than 1.5 pounds, my stomach hurts…so I try NOT to do that too often :) )

  37. 37
    Tess says:

    Homemade beet chips with Wholly Guacamole dip (they just make it better than I can!)

  38. 38

    My honest favorite chip is original wavy lays. But since I only eat those at cookouts when other people bring them (and then they are mine! All mine!) I’d have to say my usual favorite chip is tortilla chips with guacamole and salsa.

  39. 39

    I wish I had some wonderfully healthy and brilliant answer here but I LOVE corn chips and guac or salsa. They are a treat and when I get to indulge it’s sooooo yummy. But I’m hosting father’s day tomorrow and am going to give the jicama chips a try…..hubby’s family will think I’m crazy but it won’t be the first time!

  40. 40

    As lame as it sounds, I like celery for “chips” because I like dip way more than chips, so I can eat twice as much of that and not feel as bad, haha! As for my fave dip… either guac or mango salsa… depends on my mood. And Jerky is definitely a MANLY snack, haha!

    Terrie says:

    Pita chips and hummus :)

  45. 45
    Cathy says:

    Green apples, sliced with Trader Joes eggplant hummus. I know it sounds strange, but seriously, it’s wonderful!
    My hubby loves jerky, so this would be a great ‘gift’ for him having to put up with my weirdness. I could tell him it came from one of my favorite foodie sites I follow online!

    I love any dip with avocado in it. Heck, just whip up an avocado and I’m good! Also I’m loving the Beanitos I won from Fit Bottomed Girls. Yep a whole dare case (6 bags)! At 6 oz each though, they didn’t hang around my place long, lol. Would love the jerky, manly or not. Hope your hubby has a Happy Father’s Day tomorrow too.

    Candice says:

    My favorite chip and dip is any authentic Mexican restaurant that makes their own chips and guacamole. Yum!! I only do it occasionally though because they are just too good!!

  67. 67
    Tyler says:

    I tried making these last night, but continually failed to make them crispy enough for dipping. I do not know if I either applied too much olive oil, or if I cut my slices too large. Any thoughts?

      STUFT Mama says:

      I don’t ad olive oil so that might have something to do with it. :) Try them dry and try microwaving them before you bake them. It helps dry them out a bit. :) Let me know how it goes.
