Carimañolas (Baked Cassava Stuffed with Beef and Vegetables)

Description

In the Caribbean region of Colombia, carimañolas are a popular appetizer made with cassava (yuca) and filled with ground beef or cheese. The fritters are traditionally deep-fried, but in this lighter version, they’re baked. Try the carimañolas as a light meal with a salad, and don’t forget the ají, a fresh Colombian hot sauce made with cilantro, onion, and hot chili. Look for frozen cassava at well-stocked grocery stores and Latin markets. Or buy fresh cassava and then cut off the bark-like peel with a sharp knife, and cut the root into pieces. The recipe is a Yummly original created by Erica Dinho.

    Directions

    1. Bring a large pot of salted water to a boil. Add cassava, cover, and return to a boil. Reduce heat and simmer until cassava is tender when pierced with a fork, 20-30 minutes.
    2. Meanwhile, make meat filling: In a medium saucepan, heat olive oil over medium-high heat. Add white onion, 1 scallion, and 2 tablespoons red bell pepper and cook, stirring often, until vegetables are softened, about 2 minutes. Add garlic, cumin, and 1/4 teaspoon black pepper and cook, stirring often, until garlic is softened, about 1 minute.
    3. Add ground beef and cook, stirring often and scraping up browned bits from the pan, until meat is no longer pink, 3-5 minutes. Stir in tomato paste and cook 2 more minutes. Remove filling from heat, let cool, and then season to taste with more black pepper and with salt if you like.

    Canada. Sounds excellent. Can we use ready frozen mashed yuca or frozen yuca instead of fresh one. Can we freeze ready baked Carimanolas.
