You will love this crunchy and creamy Latin treat! Carimañolas are a yuca dough filled with a tasty spiced meat mixture that is fried into a fitter. These are very popular in Panamá and Colombia. These are very similar to alcapurrias and papas rellenas.
Split open the yuca pieces in half and remove the fibrous threads that run down the middle.
To make the fritters: When the dough is cool enough to handle, pinch off a piece and roll into a 2" ball.
