Air Fryer Jicama Fries with a sauceThe first step of making this Air Fryer Jicama Fries recipe is cutting your jicama. Make sure to peel off the hard brown skin exterior before slicing the inside into matchsticks. Feel free to try out a jicama stick before you coat them in the seasoning—they are perfectly fine to enjoy raw and are absolutely delicious! After your taste test, place the jicama sticks into a bowl with your favorite seasonings. We love using a classic blend of garlic powder, paprika and black pepper. Add a tablespoon of olive and toss until the jicama fries are coated in the seasoning.

Now that the jicama is prepped and ready to go, it’s time to get air frying! Place the jicama fries into an air fryer basket and cook them for 20 minutes at 400 degrees. Make sure to give the basket a shake halfway through the cooking time.
