    Rita~'s Note:

    A lsweet Latin dish. No noodles here. Plantains are used in it's place. The plantains should be ripe with black spots. Cut the ends off then slice down the side to peel the skin off. Dawn a coworker gave me this recipe which I tweaked. A traditional Dominican/ Puerto Rican meal that's sweet, savory, spicy, cheesy, and tangy. You can add corn kernel, peas, cut string beans. This is very versatile let your imagination take over. We like heat so I added some chipotles in adobo sauce. Chorizo would be interesting in this as well.
