Instructions Checklist
  • In a large pot, heat 1 1/2 inches of oil to 350. Set 2 paper towel–lined baking sheets near the stove. Working in batches, add the yucca to the oil; stir gently to separate the slices. Fry the yucca until golden brown, about 2 minutes. Using a slotted spoon, transfer the chips to the paper towels to drain.
