Yuca con chicharrón refers to one of the most popular dishes for Latinos. The presentation of this dish consists of boiled or fried pieces of cassava mixed with pickled onions and served with a crispy fried pork skin.
Yuca con chicharrón is a dish that can be served as an appetizer or as a main dish. The preparation of this dish is made from cassava served with lemon, then covered with greaves, hot sauce or mojo sauce that is made with a mixture of oil, garlic, onion, spices such as oregano and sour orange or lemon juice. This dish identifies many Latin cultures such as Honduras, El Salvador, Nicaragua among many others, of course all these countries have a different method of making or combining Yuca with Chicharrón. Mama Luisa is proud to offer this dish at all her events as it leaves much to talk about our Latin culture.
