Once the water is boiling cook the yucca till its tender.
While the yucca is cooling, take the cooled down sauce and put it in a processor and whip it smooth.
If the sauce is too thick you can add a little water and adjust the consistency.
Add salt to the sauce and let it chill in the refrigerator.
Heat oil for deep frying and fry the yucca chips till you get a golden brown texture.
