Mancha Manteles - Mexican Tablecloth Stainer

Taken directly from "Mexican Cooking" by Carolyn Dehnel. This is a regular in our house served with Arroz Blanco although I usually use a whole can of tinned chopped tomatoes as its quicker and easier. Sometimes I will use pre-cooked rotisserie chicken from the supermarket and stock cubes. The plantain can be substituted with a firm banana cut into 2.5 cm slices but only add it in the last 5 mins otherwise it will disintegrate.
