Apple-Jicama Salsa Recipe

I've been having too much fun playing soccer and riding bikes with my two first graders. So to make amends for not blogging here is my super secret, yet world famous, apple-jicama salsa recipe. (NOTE: The red chile powder is NOT red chili. You want something like this stuff. You can usually find it in the Mexican food section of your favorite grocery store.)

Apple-Jicama Salsa

8-large Granny Smith apples, large dice
2-Jicama, (same weight as apples), peeled & diced
2-small red bell peppers, small dice
2-small red onions, small dice
2-bunches cilantro, chopped

6-tbsp red chile pepper
1 ½ cups, lime juice, fresh squeezed
1 ½ cups, honey
Kosher salt, to taste

Mix red chile powder, honey and limejuice in large bowl. Add diced apples, jicama, red bell pepper, red onions to large bowl and toss until completely coated. Salt to taste.

Add a splash of good tequila, if desired.

Eat now, but is better if refrigerated for 24-48 hours.

Serve with corn chips or as a side to pork or chicken dishes.
