  • 1 pound ground beef
  • 1/4 cup oil
  • 1/2 cup onions, finely chopped
  • 2 cloves garlic, finely minced
  • 1 bell pepper, seeded, cored, and chopped
  • 1/2 teaspoon finely minced hot chili pepper
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground cumin
  • 2 tablespoons tomato paste
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • Batter:
  • 3 pounds yucca
  • 3 teaspoons olive oil

Filling: Heat the oil and fry the onion, garlic and bell pepper.

Then add the hot pepper, cumin and meat.

Mix and break up the mixture with a spoon or spatula.

Remove from heat and set aside to cool.

Batter: Peel yucca, cut into pieces and cook in water until tender but not overcooked. Puree in a food processor while warm and knead with oil and salt until the batter is soft but firm.
