    Baby Kato's Note:

    This recipe is by Hgava and is for the ZWT 7 tour of South/Central America. "This recipe is versatile and can be used as a dessert or an appetizer. Eat this plain or with a little sugar on top or with sour cream like we do in Guatemala!"

    My Private Note

    Ingredients:

    Servings:

    Units: US | Metric

    • 6 plantains, peeled and broken into chunks
    • 1 (16 ounce) can refried black beans
    • 1 tablespoon white sugar
    • 1 teaspoon salt
    • 1 quart oil (for frying)

    Directions:

    1. 1
      Place the plantains in a large pot and cover with water.
    2. 2
      Bring to a boil, then reduce heat and simmer until tender, 15 minutes, then drain and mash.
    3. 3
      In a small saucepan over low heat, heat the refried beans and stir in the sugar and salt, mix well then remove from heat.
    4. 4
      To make the rellenitos, form a palm-sized amount of mashed plantains into a ball; flatten and place about a teaspoon of the bean mixture in the middle; then mold the sides of the plantain around the beans, making an egg-shaped ball.
    5. 5
      Heat oil in a deep-fryer or large skillet to 375 degrees F or until a small amount of batter sizzles and browns in the oil.
    6. 6
      Fry rellenitos in oil until browned and drain on paper towels.
    7. 7
      Enjoy plain, with sugar or with sour cream.

      This makes a nice appetizer, although I am a little weirded out about putting sugar in refried beans. I guess it could be a dessert if you put sugar on it.
