Bring a large pot of water to a boil. Using a sharp knife, cut ends of yuca off. Then you can cut in half (two larger pieces = larger fries) or three round pieces (=smaller fries). This will not affect the cooking times.
Using a sturdy peeler remove all the brown waxy yuca skin. Grab your knife again and cut the yuca in half and each half into 3-4 thinner pieces to resemble ‘fries’. Do this with the remaining yuca.
Give the yuca a quick rinse and add to the boiling water for 10 minutes. Pre-heat oven to 450F degrees at this time. Line a large baking sheet with parchment paper and set aside
Using a rubber spatula remove yucca from water and place on a paper towel or baking sheet with rack to drip excess water.
Transfer yuca to prepared sheet and sprinkle yuca with sea salt and chili powder.
Bake for 30 minutes, turning yucca half way through. Store leftover yuca in an air tight/ zipper bag. Pan fry with coconut oil to re-heat
