Wednesdays Wonders: Tacaho

Here is a recipe that is common not only in Putumayo but throughout the Amazon.



5 Green Plantains, boiled for 20 minutes and then mashed
Salt to taste.
1 Tablespoon lard
1/4 pound chicharrón (pork skin) in small pieces, if unavailable use bacon crumbles or ham chunks -- all precooked
1-2 Tablespoons finely diced onion


Mix all ingredients together. Then, make it into balls from golf to baseball size. Some people eat the balls this way. Other recipes suggest that you fry them in oil or bake them in the oven.
