A Caribbean Twist On Homemade Fries

If your family likes homemade fries, try a change of pace with this delicious, fried yuca recipe. A staple of Latin America, yuca is a mild flavored root vegetable, similar to potato, with a hint of sweetness. Crisp and golden brown, fried yuca is a perfect canvas for our tangy mojo sauce, a fresh blend of GOYA® Extra-Virgin Olive Oil, onions, garlic and lemon juice.

You can count on GOYA® to make homemade fries the easy way! Frozen GOYA® Yuca is peeled and chopped – ready to go. It’s delicious with all your favorite meats, poultry and seafood -- roasted or grilled.
