This is one of the healthiest, crunchiest snacks I know. It is low in calories, has no added fat or sugar, and offers plenty of roughage. It is a favorite in Mexico, and it may prove to be a favorite on your movie or game night!

- 1/4 tsp cayenne
- 1/4 tsp garlic powder

- In a small bowl, whisk together the remaining ingredients. Sprinkle only one-half of the spice mixture over the jicama.
