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!

 Taco Fillings!

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!
