How to Peel and Cook Yuca

Yuca has a thick brown skin which needs to be peeled before use, revealing a crisp white flesh inside. The tuber has a tough fibrous core that also needs to be removed before use. Use a sharp knife to remove both the peel and the inner core. Cut yuca into small pieces, then place in saucepan of water and bring water to boil. Cook on medium-low heat 25 to 30 min. or until yuca is fork-tender. Drain, then use as desired.

Make Ahead

Prepare and assemble dish except for the top layer of cheese up to a day ahead. Bake, covered, in 350°F oven 20 to 25 min. or until heated through. Uncover, top with cheese; bake 3 min. or until cheese is melted.
