Hierva la calabaza. Cuando esté blandita, majela con un tenedor. Agrege los demás ingredientes. La harina de trigo es para conservar la consistencia de la fritura. Con un cucharita eche la mezcla en un sartén con aceite bien caliente, hasta que doren.

Contrary to popular belief the Puerto Rican flag is not based on the American Flag, but the Cuban flag. Puerto Rico adopted the same flag design, which was unveiled in 1895. In 1952, the blue field was changed from a light blue to a darker blue, like the American flag.
