So I was looking for a “chip” to dip in guacamole…aka “wacamole “in our house due to it being my 3 year olds favorite snack. I had picked up some chips at Trader Joes that were plantain chips. They were crunchy and salty and delicious but cooked in vegetable oil. So I thought I would make them myself but use my usual coconut oil that I fry things in. So I bought a plantain and sliced it a couple days later on my mandolin and deep fryed them in the Spectum Organic Coconut Oil that I love. They did not come out as chips BUT as an amazing side. I ended up with plantanos maduros (Cuban sweet plantains).Very easy to make! YYYUUUMMM!
I am going to try to make the crispy ones this week-end. I am going to use a green, non-ripe plantain and see what happens. I may fry them longer (I only did it for 3 minutes) and then add celtic sea salt.
