Serves 6 | Prep Time 30 minutes | Cook Time 15 minutes


2 lbs of peeled Yucca sliced paper thin into chips (you can use a mandolin slicer, cheese peeler, electric meat slicer or a knife)
6 cups of oil for frying
2 tsp of ground ginger
2 tsp of onion powder
1 tsp of lime zest

Bake in preheated 400 oven for 15 minutes (keep eye on it after 10)

In a brown paper bag throw in ginger, zest & onion powder

Add baked Yucca & shake all ingredients together

You can also fry or deep fry, but why take in the extra fat & calories, these are just as crisp

I love fusing my Latin Caribbean roots with Asian flavors... I have this running CHino Latino theme. Outside of America the Yucca root is the most popular starch. Twice the fiber of the potato & a fantastic flavor, adding the Asian influence of the zingy ginger is like a party in your mouth
