Bollitos de Carita is a Afro-Cuban dish. To add to that it is more African than Spainard. Acara is name given to this recipe.

1 gallon of water
1 lb bag of Blackeyed peas
8 cloves of garlic (to taste)
1 tablepoon of salt
1 table spoon of olive oil
1 spoon tip of baking powder
1 quart of cooking oil (deep frying)

Place the 1 lb of Blackeye Peas in a gallon of water overnight. Here comes the hard part. You take handfulls of beans place them on a towel and remove the outer shell which has the black part. Separate them into a bowl so you are only left with the white beans.

Place the beans in a blender add garlic, salt, olive oil, and baking powder. Blend till you have a thick paste.

Heat the oil in a deep pot or fryer. Test the heat by taking a spoonfull of the batter and dipping it in the oil. Fry till golden. Serve hot.
