1/1 Photo of Plantain Chips (Platanutres)
Plantains are a member of the banana family and look like large bananas. They are hard and starchy when green, and are used much like a potato. They turn yellow, and then black, as they ripen. This is a yummy way to fix them! Prep time includes soaking time.
