Directions

  1. In medium Dutch oven heat oil to 350 degrees F.
  2. Place all spices in mixing bowl, and combine thoroughly.
  3. Peel yucca tubes with heavy-duty vegetable peeler until bark is completely removed. Cut yucca into strips: 1/4-inch wide, 4 inches long. Add yucca into oil and fry until golden brown. With a slotted spoon remove the yucca from the oil and drain on paper towels.
  4. Season hot yucca fries with spice mixture and lime zest and serve on a warm paper-towel-lined platter.

I was looking for a way to dress up some yucca that I had fried. How wonderful these spices are. I will be keeping this mixture on hand to use on meats, french fries, and other veggies. Thank you for sharing this recipe.

We ate these up! I sprinkled the spice mixture, lightly, directly on the hot fries, and doused them in fresh lime juice rather than using the zest (have you ever tried zesting a lime you've already cut open? Not an easy project). Tasted at least as good as I got in a Colombian restaurant! Thanks for posting.
