Fried Garlic in Oaxaca (Ajos Fritos?)

toddmoy | Dec 26, 2011 03:25 PM

Hi folks,

I'm trying to reproduce a snack one of my friends found in Oaxaca. I believe it's called Ajos Fritos -- essentially garlic that has been fried in its casing and dusted with salt and chile powder. (see photo)

At first glance, it seems as simple as simply deep frying them until done. I'm not sure, however, if they need any other preparation beforehand.

I've exhausted google searches so if anyone has suggestions, I'd appreciate the help.
