Jicama Taco Party!

 

Cinco de Mayo is fast approaching! I have lots of Cinco de Mayo recipes for those of us watching our carbs but I have never posted a grain free tortilla…until now. One ingredient, no cooking required and this shell stays crispy without falling apart. And that’s because the taco shell is made entirely from thinly sliced jicama!

Once jicama is sliced simply top with left over roasted chicken, rotisserie chicken, my grilled chicken, my crock pot roast, or pulled pork and then top with my homemade salsas or guacamole, tomatoes, cilantro and a squeeze of lime! So easy!

  1. This is SO clever! I can’t believe no one else has thought of this (or at least I’ve never seen it before!)! Super cool!

    My fiance loooves jicama, we night just have to try this variation 🙂

    What a great tip!

  2. WHAT!!!!!!! Once again you have blown my mind. When you said grain free tortilla I was like how is she going to pull that one off but you totally did it. Now I have to find a Jicama stat for taco Tuesday tomorrow.

  3. Oh how I look forward to Cinco de Mayo each year. Tex-Mex is one of my favorite genres of food. Finding a grain free option is music to my ears. I’m really trying to cut back on wheat.
