This was the first time I've ever eaten plantains, and I loved them! I has bought some green plantains intending to make plantain chips, but I let them get too ripe, so I tried this instead. Great recipe!
These are how plantains are served in my house. You can also sprinkle with pepper if you want. Ripe plantains have a little give when squeezed and are starting to or have already turned black. I laugh when I go to some grocery stores because they mark them down when they start to yellow from the unripe green. Usually green plantains cost less than the ripe yellow plantains.
