    nsomniak6's Note:

    Recipe courtesy Tyler Florence. This is a lovely dessert or sweet accompaniment to Arroz Con Pollo or another savory latin dish! I love to eat it with Lechon Asado and Black beans and rice; I think it offsets the garlic well.

    Ingredients:

    Units: US | Metric

    Directions:

    1. 1
      To peel the plantains, cut off ends and discard. With a paring knife, make 3 shallow slits lengthwise along the seams of the skin and peel away. Split the plantains lengthwise.
    2. 2
      Heat 4 tablespoons butter in a large skillet and place over medium low heat (plantains have a high sugar content and will burn if the heat is too high.)
    3. 3
      Fry the plantains in a single layer, until golden on the bottom then turn over with a spatula.
    4. 4
      Add the cinnamon, vanilla, and sugar and let cook a few more seconds, just to begin caramelizing the sugar.
    5. 5
      Just before serving, melt remaining tablespoon of butter to finish the sauce. Serve immediately.

      Love it! I was in Progresso, Mexico last month and ordered fried plantains, took one bite and knew that I had to make this at home. This recipe is very close. Next time I'm going to add a couple of tablespoons of orange juice to the sauce.

      It was very good! However I would not use as much butter next time- it just doesn't need it. I paired them with a hot cereal mixture I make in my rice cooker and Oh Man was that good. Top it with a bit of chocolate sauce and I'm in heaven!
