Recipe Directions

1. Slice your jicama as thinly as you can so it can be folded. 2. Mix the other ingredients except the mango completely. 3. Serve the guacamole inside the jicama and top with the mango.

Harmonylia's Thoughts

I stole this idea from “Top Chef” contestant Richard Blais and twisted it a bit to fit me. It’s so light and tasty I just scarfed down all of it.

Yum! I make this for my BF and I all the time. I have been successful with the taco jicama but I find it easier to chop the jicama in quarters and slice them on the mandolin so they are triangular like corn chips.

Oh that is wonderful, and I'm sorry the jicama didn't work out for you but it was easier with a bigger hunk of jicama. I haven't made these in a while, should be about time to give them a try again. rachel_akiko, as wonderfully delightful as the proposition sounds, I am ultimately flattered but taken :P

Jacfred1: Jicama is right near the potatoes. I don't think it has another name, but you never know! If you find turnips or parsnips,it should be close by! Where in NY are you? I'm up in Syracuse and if i have it here, i can guarantee you have it where you are :) If not, just ask your supermarket and they might special order it for you.

Hi Kristen, I actually don't use a mandolin to slice mine. What you must have read was that I am deadly with the mandolin, SO I don't use it lol, for fear of losing a finger!!! I flatten the bottom of the peeled jicama and then use a bread knife (the serrated ones work so very well) to slice them. I'm sorry you weren't able to get the slicing down, but happy it worked, I'm not sure I find the jicama impractical with just a sharp knife!

I wish I'd seen that I needed a mandolin before I started prepping this recipe. I couldn't slice the jicama thin enough and when I did, it wouldn't fold and just snapped in half. Ultimately, I chopped everything up and made a big fat salad...which, by the way, was absolutely delicious and cooling on this hot Summer day. Together, the ingredients are awesome, but jicama is impractical for tacos without the right tools.

I was wondering if a turnip would work hippie chick! I have one in the fridge and the kids want tacos tonight, so, it works! Rawsiki, they taste semi sweet, and are crunchy, like an apple almost.
