A little taste of South America and the Caribbean. The key is to use very ripe plantains that are black on the outside. That way, you get soft, sweet plantains once they are cooked.
1
Preheat oil in a large, deep skillet over medium high heat.
2
Peel the plantains and cut them in half. Slice the halves lengthwise into thin pieces.
3
Fry the pieces until browned and tender. Drain excess oil on paper towels.
