Dominican Yucca Empanadas (Catibias)
Yucca or tapioca empanadas are a crispy, gluten-free and delicious classic recipe from the Dominican Republic. I believe they are called "catibias de yuca" in DR. Begin with fresh yucca root and a simple dough is made and these can be filled with anything you might enjoy. I made mine with a ground beef, although any filling you prefer like chicken, pork or veggies or even just plain unfilled discs are fantastic!
