This blend of fresh veggies is a must have in Puertorican cuisine. I make it every 2 months and freeze what I wont use. It can be added to stews, rice, beans, soups etc.
Everyone makes it different, I choose not to add cilantro, that way I can use it in all my dishes without giving them all a puertorican taste. All ingredients are up to taste, you can add more or less as you prefer.
Very tasty way of using ripe plantains. This is one of my favorite dishes!
Plantains need to be yellow and a little tender for this recipe. Plantains that have many dark spots and are very very tender should not be used.
I found this one at a Puerto Rican website (El Boricua.com) when I was not able to get a hold of GMa to tell me how to make them. :)
It makes the process way much simple than the traditional. Yummy yummy!
After so much trial and error I gave up trying to make this recipe just like Gma's. This is the one I use. I try to keep it as "low-fat" possible by not adding bacon or sausage like other recipes call for.
