Very tasty combination of hot and sweet. If plantains are not available, a large just-ripe banana is a good substitute.

This was a real hit for dinner. Everyone thought the combination of the plantains, yams along with the pork and cumin made for a savory, but not too spicy mixture. I added extra broth, and increased the spices accordingly. Also I added about 3 cups of rice, instead of serving it separately. This is definitely a keeper - thanks!

Off the charts good. I added more poblano (some places call 'em pasilla) peppers to add more spicy flavor. I used same amount as green peppers. Made it for 25 guys at the SLE I volunteer at. They had it over rice. Got rave reviews.
