Default Puerto Rican Baked Plantain Surprise

Take your greenish plantains (what we call "pintos" in Puerto Rico becaue
they have splotches of lighter green or yellow on the skin and they're
softer to the touch), peel them, and cut them in half right down the
middle... you'll have 2 pieces that look like horns ...

Place them, individually, in a piece of aluminum foil big enough to fold
over and twist the ends... make a deep cut in the platano but not all the
way down... sprinkle a dash of adobo seasoning with pepper on it and put
some queso de bola (Edam cheese) or sharp cheddar cheese in the cut... add a
couple of pats of butter to this (or 3 or 4 if they're big platanos) and
wrap it up... make sure the neds are twisted tight and the top of the
platano with the cheese faces up...

Place the platano packs in a baking pan and cook it at 350 degrees until you
can pierce it with no resistance... just make sure you don't pierce it
straight through or the yummy stuff will leak out... when it's done let it
stand for a few minutes and enjoy!

It sometimes takes 30 minutes, sometimes 45... it all depends on the degree
of ripeness...

You can also cook this on your grill with great results...

Now, if you love pinto plantains, get some to make the stuffing for your
turkey... just make sure it's more green than ripe...

I love them too, the only way I don't like them is in soups or just plain boiled. I wanted to like the plain boiled ones as a side vegetable but I couldn't get used to it

I do love in Mofongo or the Dominican version, Mangu'

You guys should try "aranitas", I think is the best way to eat bananas but I love then in any way shape or form too.Here is the receipy

Araņitas - Shredded Green Plantain Fritters




Araņitas are a variation of the tostones recipe. In Spanish, araņitas means little spiders and the recipe gets its name from the shredded plantain, which looks like spider legs when fried. Serve araņitas with a garlic dipping sauce.
Prep Time: 5 minutes

Cook Time: 15 minutes

Total Time: 20 minutes

Ingredients:

1 green plantain
3 cloves garlic (minced)
salt and pepper to taste
oil for frying
Preparation:

1.Peel the plantain and shred with a coarse grater.
2. Place the grated plantain in salted water and let soak for about 10 minutes.

3.Drain the grated plantain and dry with paper towels to soak up excess water.

4.Mix the grated plantain with the garlic, and salt and pepper to taste.

5.Heat the oil in a frying pan over medium high heat.

6.Fry the shredded mix by the spoonful in clumps until golden, about 5 minutes.

7.Drain on paper towels and serve with garlic dipping sauce.
