Jicama is a recent addition to our household. One day I felt the urge for a snack, so I fired up the deep-fryer, sliced up a jicama root and discovered Stella Style! Fries! With just a little everyday seasoning, they taste almost like BBQ potato chips! Cut jicama into large chunks to make home fries in place of potatoes!

Ingredients

Directions

Place a heavy pot over medium-high heat and fill with at least 1-inch vegetable oil. Heat the oil to 350 degrees F. (Portable deep-fryers at home are great for this, but if you don¿t have one, use a candy thermometer ¿ just be careful!)

Very thinly slice the jicama, as you would a potato to make chips, then stack a few slices at a time and cut them all into matchstick-sized pieces.

Carefully place the chips into the hot oil (use a slotted spoon and wear mitts) and fry until very crispy (just a few minutes will do). Cook in batches, as necessary. Remove and drain on paper towels.

Sprinkle liberally with equal amounts of salt, onion, and garlic powders, and paprika to taste. Toss to coat well and serve immediately.
