View Full Version : Jicama Chips?

Anyone ever make chips out of Jicama? I was thinking about cutting them up and marinating it for 24 hours then popping it into the dehydrator. Anyone got any marinades to share? Thx

I've never done these ... sounds interesting. I don't have any ideas about a marinade ... sorry.
Please share the results! :)

Hold on! Since I'm a technology boob, I'm going to rehash an old thread with one of my favorite recipes using jicama chips. Look for it, the op is Tropigal.

Well the Jicama chips are in the dehydrator as we speak. I will let everyone know how it turned out in about 24 hours. I made 2 kinds of chips. One was marinated with lemon juice, olive oil, honey, chili flakes, and a little salt. The next one was with tomatoes, garlic, basil, olive oil, and a little salt. I marinated both for almost 24 hours. After I put the chips on the dehydrator I poured some of the marinade over the chips. I cut the chips in the shape of potato chips and fries.

I really like jicama fries. I slice the peeled jicama into french fries, sprinkle with a little olive oil, onion powder, garlic powder, chili powder, smoked paprika, sea salt, and pepper. Let 'em marinate a bit, then put in the dehydrator for an hour or two, just long enough to soften and warm the fries. So Good!
A couple times I've left these fries in the dehydrator for too long and they weren't very good.

Probably better to follow RawKnitster's advice. The texture of letting it go for so many hours does not change that much. The jicama shrank a bit and never got really crispy. I wanted to let it go further to see if it actually turned into a chip but I didn't see the point. The flavors held pretty well though. If I were to do it again I would use alot more jicama, I would use all 9 trays to get a nice bundle of chips. They taste great. The texture was similar to a fried onion.
