Jicama tortillas are my jam! They are truly what whole food, low-carb, healthy taco dreams are made of!
They are made from jicama, which is a root vegetable with a very mild taste and crisp texture. In tortillas form they lend themselves beautifully to tacos due to their pliability and crispness. And since they don’t have much flavor, they let the taste of your fillings shine through. You can even toss them in a frying pan to brown/warm them before using.
I found them in the produce department at my local grocery store. Here’s the packaging….
As you can see there is negligible carb or calorie content. Bonus!
I made my Salsa Chicken with tomatillo salsa, then topped them with some shredded cabbage tossed with a bit of cilantro dressing.
So dang good.
Look for these in your produce section next time you head to the grocery store!
Hey! I’m Julie.
I help busy moms feed their families healthy foods in a lot less time.
I’m the founder of Well Fed Families, a mom of three kids who I had over the span of 21 years (I like doing things slowly sometimes), a lover of food, and an 80’s rock fanatic. I also dig jail shows and anything from the 1940s.
As you can tell from the above I’m a little weird. I‘m also a little funny (okay, sometimes a lot funny).
But one thing’s for sure…..I’ve been doing this healthy eating thing for my family for a loooooong time.
And most importantly? Moms who are feeling overwhelmed by that whole concept are my HEART! I want to help you in any way I can, because I know how hard it can be sometimes.
So take a load off and stay a while. I’m super glad you’re here. <3
Psst…before you leave be sure to grab the free cookbook below! It’s my little way of saying thanks for checking out Well Fed Families….
Does dinner time stress you out?
Hate being tied to the kitchen when you get home, when you just want to RELAX already?!
I feel ya, sister.
That’s why I created a cookbook just for us: the exhausted moms who long for easy weeknights, but still want to feed our family healthy meals.
And I have a sample version with your name on it.
