Jicama is related to the sharp-tasting turnip, but it is very mild in flavor and packs an inviting crunch in the fresh salsa. Peel the brown outer skin, and then chop the white flesh. Tomatillos are green vegetables that look like cherry tomatoes. They come in husks, so remove the husks and rinse off any sticky residue before chopping.
Although the flavor may not be as refreshing, you can serve any favorite salsa with these burritos.
