This amazing appetizer or 'tapas' is so delicious. Golden brown nuggets of pure, hammy heaven and easy to prepare. Once you prepare these, they will become your personal weakness. Hey, who says appetizers are only for parties? Do you have a special movie you plan to watch all by yourself? Prepare these to enhance your movie enjoyment. Have them ready to fry in the fridge, and at any given moment of weakness just throw them in the oil until done. And no, you don't have to share this salty, smokey treat. And you don't have to be Puerto Rican or even Latina to enjoy either. Serve them with Salsa Rosa or any other dipping sauce you prefer.
See the full recipe in the July issue of EL BORICUA, a monthly publication of Puerto Ricans.

Hundreds of rescued dogs and cats are being flown in from Puerto Rico to mainland shelters for adoption. The island has more than 300,000 street dogs, plus cats, and shelters with a 92 percent kill rate, the highest of any state or territory in the U.S., according to the Humane Society. There are several groups tending to the island's sato problem. Sato is Puerto Rico's name for street dogs.
The Sato Project is dedicated to rescuing abandoned and abused dogs from Puerto Rico. The group has been working to make change on Dead Dog Beach for the past 8 years. Incorporated and an official 501(c)3 since 2011, they have rescued over 1,600 dogs, rehabilitated them to the highest veterinary standard possible, and found them loving homes. In 2016 they launched an ambitious Spay, Neuter, Vaccine, and Microchip program and are working to bring systemic change to Puerto Rico through education and partnerships on the Island. Donate now.
