It is hard to eat only one frita, and that’s not just because they are small. These Cuban-style hamburgers are addictive! When hamburgers were first introduced to Cuba from the United States, Cubans found them a bit bland and “kicked it up a notch” by adding onion and other seasonings. Topping these tasty, three-bite burgers with freshly fried shoestring potatoes is another Cuban innovation that combines the flavors of a burger and fries in one compact package.
