Croquetas are served in countries all over the world, from Belgium to India to Puerto Rico. But there's no doubt that Miami does them best. They're simple, but though they be but little, they be fierce.
Traditionally, croquetas are made with mashed potatoes or ground meat and mixed with béchamel sauce, then formed into a bite-sized cylinder and fried until golden brown. But nowadays they take on many different shapes, sizes and flavors.
