Spicy is right!

April 15, 2015
I really enjoyed these tostadas!  I have only just discovered jicama and I'm in love.  Topping with the jicama slaw was perfect for contrasting the spice.  These were definitely a little too spicy for my taste and I'd love some suggestions on how to cut the spice back (extreme novice chef over here).  If spicy foods are not your thing you probably won't enjoy these.
