Chipotle Jicama Fries

Fries are my weakness. Definitely a comfort food for me. So it would only make sense that I try to make an healthy alternative. Made this Chipotle Jicama Fries and was left with a smile on my face. This recipe can be used for both a cooked or raw version. 
A round, bulbous root vegetable with origins in the Mexican peninsula, jicama (pronounced hee-cama) is part of the legume family and grows on vines.
Very similar in texture to a turnip with a taste closer to an apple, jicama shares the monikers "Mexican water chestnut" and "Mexican yam bean." Jicama
