      Very flavorful and worth the effort. Paired this with a pernil-style pork roast for a nice summer BBQ last year. Thanks for the posting!

      Although my DH is from Puerto Rico, I had never "made" these. I have had plantain in other dishes, but never on it's own. I always liked plantain, but this was wonderfully delicious. We just sat and ate these as a small appetizer, just adding a bit of garlic salt after I fried them. I also served them with a bit of cream cheese and Tabasco sauce, that we ended up dipping a bit of it on the plantain. Yummy! Will make this surely, again and again.

      This is actually more a side dish than a snack. Goes perfect with pork, rice and beans, cubed steak w/ onions, sea food etc. It's better when the garlic is added after they are done. Also, they can be seasoned with all purpose seasoning (Adobo) =)
