These mouth-watering alcapurrias are simple to make. Just peel the guineos verdes and the yautias and run thru the food processor. Prepare the meat the day before so there is less effort the following day. The only tricky part is putting it together.

I do it the way my mother taught me. Oil my hands, add masa and spread then put picadillo in the middle and slowly close my hand, seal the edges and into the frying pan. Our food is so delicious!
