Guess what this month is!? Hispanic Heritage Month! I am so PROUD of being LATINA! Sazon, arroz, and Habichuelas run through these veins! I am so proud of all the Latin foodies who are representing their countries signature dishes year-round! I’m just so proud. I knew I had to bring up the heat this month and this is why I decided to share my Cheese Stuffed Yuca (Cassava root) Balls recipe. Can we say, YES PLEASE!? Fried yumminess with California Milk Queso Fresco cheese inside, just waiting to be dipped in a pool of cilantro sauce. Can you envision it!? If not, no worries, the video is below :)….
Fall is FINALLY here, and that only means that Christmas is around the corner and you already know how I feel about Christmas. I felt a little bit of breeze yesterday and thought, “CHRISTMAS IS ALMOST HERE!!” Crazy much? The holidays only mean food, food and more food, OH and family! But mostly food. These Cheese Stuffed Yuca Balls are every party’s need-to-have appetizers. 1 pound of Yuca looks like it isn’t enough, but when you boil it, all of a sudden it grows, and you can get at least 20 balls out of just 1 pound of Yuca! You can buy Yuca (Cassava) frozen or the actual root in your grocery stores vegetable section. The cilantro sauce gives the Yuca balls life! It is so garlicky and cilantro-y…. Let me just let you be the judge! Try this amazing recipe!
