There was a restaurant in Center City Philadelphia called Chifa's that my husband and I visited religiously! One of our favorite side dishes was their Yuca fries because at the bottom of the crispy Yuca was a spoonful of chimichurri. The fresh flavor of cilantro and parsley combined with the spices and vinegar were the perfect dipping sauce for these crispy fries. It also tasted great when placed on top of our meat. I'm sharing this Spanish seasoning with you because it's awesome. I hope you enjoy!

  • 3 Tbsp red or white wine vinegar (maybe 3)
