Jicama wraps can be found at Trader Joe’s and used as a healthy vegetable replacement for flour or corn tortillas. They make the perfect tortilla swap for soft tacos and work well as the foundation for simple roll-up appetizers. I love that they have a yummy crunchy texture and are only 15 calories each. This recipe is made with guacamole, toasted almonds, cilantro, and chili powder. But any type of hummus, spreadable cheese, or dip also works well, and additions can include sesame seeds, currants, slivered olives, toasted pine nuts, and Everything But The Bagel seasoning.
