Today I am featuring another delicious snack that goes well with mango sour, plantain chips. Plantain chips are a simple treat and they are so easy to make. It’s another school yard favorite. Definitely something I bought many days during recess (break, as we called it) when I was in high school!
For this recipe you just need a green plantain, something to slice it really thin (you can use a knife if you are skillful), and some oil for frying (about 3 cups of canola oil).
Let’s get to it…..
Plantain Chips (1 serving)
1 green plantain
3 cups canola oil (for frying)
salt to taste.
Peel plantain and slice into thin circular pieces. In a frying pan heat oil to 350 degrees Fahrenheit. Add plantain slices to oil and cook for about 1 minute or until golden. Remove from oil and drain on a paper towel. Add salt to taste.
Tips and Ramblings:
1. The thinner you slice the plantains the crispier the chips will be.
2. It’s important to drain the chips on some sort of absorbent paper or it will be soggy
3. I am using a kitchen aid slice that makes really thin chips.
