Leave it to me to find interesting and new products at my local Trader Joe’s. Recently I came across Jicama Wraps, which were perfectly shaped in/as a small tortilla would be. I love Jicama so it made perfect sense to try these out for Taco Night. Jicama Wrapped Beef Tacos with Anjou Pears are low carb and full of flavor. My husband enjoys them as well and he liked the texture. I used ground beef but you could totally substitute with ground chicken or turkey, or make it vegan by adding butternut squash and black beans.
Jicama Wraps from Trader Joe’s
These Jicama Wraps are found in the refrigerator section of Trader Joe’s. For this taco recipe, you would use these in place of regular tortillas or taco shells. At 15 calories per serving for the wraps, it’s a recipe definitely worth trying! If you want to keep this keto, just omit the rice.
Jicama tortillas or wraps, are a little bit delicate and rip easily. I suggest using 2 when using for tacos as you want to hold the meat mixture in.Because these come cold and are eaten raw, I didn’t warm them. The cool and crunchy texture was one the things we love about this recipe because it was refreshing! Squeezing the fresh lime juice on top of the seasoned beef along with the sweetness of the pear, made for a splendid and healthy Taco Tuesday!
Salsa can replace the pears, that would be delicious as well! Let your Taco Imagination run wild!
