Description

A deliciously easy Mexican snack.

Ingredients

  • 3 whole Plantains
  • 5-½ cups Oil (I Used Canola), For Frying
  • Salt And Garlic Powder, To Taste

Preparation

Start out by peeling your plantains, cutting them in half and slicing them into 1/8″ thick pieces.

Pour your oil into a frying pan and heat it up good and hot on high heat. Drop in your plantains, 5 or 6 at a time, being sure they aren’t overlapping each other. Let them cook for about a minute and then remove them from the oil.

Place them on a cutting board or other flat surface and flatten them down. I used the flat end of my meat hammer and that seemed to do the job.

Take the flattened plantains and put them back into the oil for one more minute. When the minute is up, pull them out, lay them on paper towel to drain, and sprinkle both sides with salt and garlic powder.

I used to get these at a Puerto Rican restaurant all the time, but now I moved to the land of no ethnic food! Can’t wait to try to make them!

At the restaurant, they came with a clear garlic dipping sauce… do you have any idea how to make that? :)
