    1. 1
      For the sauce:Crush and mix in mortar.
    2. 2
      Trim ends of bananas and slit just the peel, lengthwise, on both sides. In a deep 8qt pot, bring water to a boil to cover green bananas. Add bananas, cover, and boil over low heat for 15 minutes. Drain and peel.
    3. 3
      Note: If you want to make it faster, place bananas in sink full of warm water. Add milk. This will prevent the knife and your hands from staining. This also works when peeling green plantains.

      Pleasantly suprised! Very flavorful. I added cilantro and it added even more freshness and hispanic flair.
