happy cinco de mayo! today it is time to celebrate + cook up one of my favorites, plátano frito or fried plantains. plantains look like bananas but when cooked, are treated in much the same way as potatoes because they have a similar flavor and texture.
here's my recipe...
peel plantains and slice as thin as possible. fry in hot oil until golden brown. drain on paper towels + salt to taste. serve warm + enjoy!
