Loved this but definitely trial and error if you aren’t experienced with frying food. I could not figure out how long to fry it for but once I got it down WOW this was delicious. Crispy and flavorful and amazing with rice.

This was absolutely delicious ? will definitely be making again. Instead of rice we used tacos and it was a winner ! Highly recommend
