Jicama Salad

Peel and slice jicama, then cut slices into thin matchsticks. Toss together with cilantro and fresh orange sections and drizzle with a dressing of 1 part lime juice to 4 parts vegetable oil.

Warm Tortillas

Warm tortillas in the microwave on half power so they don't dry out. Serve with butter.

Salsa-Grilled Chicken

Marinate chicken cutlets in salsa, then grill in a stovetop grill, outdoors, or in a countertop grill machine. Discard salsa from marinating. Serve with fresh salsa.
