PLATANOS MADUROS (COSTA RICAN FRIED RIPE PLANTAINS)

Ingredients

  • 4 ripe dark-skinned plantains
  • 5 tablespoons vegetable oil

Preparation

Heat vegetable oil in skillet over medium heat.

Fully peel plantains, and cut them diagonally into approximately 1-inch wide pieces, working your way down the length of the plantain. (NOT length-wise slices).

Carefully place pieces of plantain in skillet.

Flipping often, fry plantains until golden brown. The plantains will be rather mushy - they're supposed to be.

They will be sweet - the riper the plantains, the sweeter they will be. If you prefer them sweeter, you can sprinkle with sugar before cooking.
