Bomba de Jicama

Contributed by: Christina C. Keimig

No, it's not dangerous, unless you've a stomach ulcer, but it's a regional favorite here in Leon, Guanajuato, Mexico. You may flinch at the ingredients, but trust me, the combination is delicious!

You'll need:

  • 1 jicama (diced)
  • lemon juice (fresh-squeezed)
  • pineapple vinegar
  • chili powder
  • salt
  • diced onion
  • grated white cheese (they use a really dry, bland one here - I usually leave it out because I don't like it much, personally)

Here, we usually prepare our "bombas" in disposable cups (as they're usually purchased from street vendors), so that's the measurement I'll indicate-fill the cup with jicama, then add salt, chili powder, lemon juice, pineapple vinegar to taste, and put the cheese and onion on top. Then serve-everyone mixes their own!

I recommend you go light on the vinegar, unless you're accustomed to consuming a lot. It does add a lot of flavor, but too much ruins this snack!
