DIRECTIONS

  • First make tostones: Cut plantains in wedges. Fry until tender. Flaten with a "tostonera" or with a second cutting board. Fry for a second time, until light golden.
  • Using a mortar, crush garlic cloves and add adobo.
  • In a medium bowl, mix together the garlic/adobo paste, olive oil and chicharron or bacon.
  • Mash the tostones, a few at a time (never use a food processor!).
  • Add some of the garlic mixture.
  • Mash tostones in separate bowls. This will allow the garlic mixture to spread evenly.
  • If too dry, add more oil.
  • Shape like small balls.
  • Serve with pork meat, soups, seafood or solo.
