Yuca Fritters, AREPITAS De YUCA
Submitted by:
Makes: 45 servings adjust
Yuca fritters, like tostones, are common side dishes in Dominican cuisine. I love these so much, I even eat them cold. With stewed beef, baked chicken, rice and beans or simple alone, these are tasty fritters. There are several ways to make them changing an ingredient here and another there, but always with the same results, delicious fried yuca!

a)This recipe can be divided in half if you prefer to do less arepitas.

b) You can prepare this the night before and store it in a zip lock or covered container in the refrigerator and fry the next day.

c) Any leftover fried arepitas can be stored in the refrigerator and heated in the microwave the next day.
