Alcapurrias are fried fritters. Made out of a mixture of grated yautía (taro root) and green bananas stuffed in the center with ground beef. Some cooks substitute the beef with other meats. They are not the healthiest food choice on the planet (nothing fried will ever be). But they taste so good, you'd opt for raising your cholesterol for the sake of an Alcapurria.
Watch the beautiful Latino family on the clip above, as they will teach you how you too can make alcapurrias.
