Avocado and Jicima Salad with Baked Tortillas

This is quite possibly the most simple thing you will ever make.  I eat this for lunch sometimes when I know my day will be hectic and I don’t want to feel heavy.  If you don’t like avocado, you won’t like this.  If you don’t know what jicama is, you are about to find out!

Jicama is kind of like a mix between an apple and a potato.  It comes from Mexico and is great in any kind of salad.  I like the crunch paired with avocado to add a little different texture.

The skin is easy to remove.  I use a knife and just peel it off.

Delicious!  I also put a little cayenne pepper on my chips before baking them for some heat.  If you want, you can add jalapeño or onion to your salad. I was in the mood for something simple.  Make sure you taste the combo after you add 1/2 the lime to make sure you aren’t overpowering.  I like more lime than some people so I went for it.

This is a great, simple summer dinner or side to eat with quesadillas or tacos.  I love it onto  of a bed of lettuce with a cilantro lime dressing.
