Ingredients

4 green plantains

1 lb of chicharrón (crunchy pork skin)

3 garlic cloves, mashed

4 teaspoons of olive oil

2 cups frying oil


Steps

1

Peel the plantains, cut them into 1 1/2-inch slices, soak them in salty water for 15 minutes, drain them and dry them before putting them on the hot skillet with oil.

2

Fry them for about 12 minutes at medium-low heat or until they turn light brown. Make sure to turn them. Do not brown them too much, so they are easy to mash. Stick a fork in them to check if they are done.

3

Remove them and mash them on a mortar. Add some mashed garlic and pieces of chicharrón.

4

Once you have mashed all the plantains, mold them into the shape of half sphere using your hands or a container. Serve hot with chicken broth or your favorite meat.
