Growing up like I did, moving every few years, I learned to love alot of different foods. Nothing is more dear to my heart than the humble plantain. I especially liked tostones. We called them “Cara de Gato” because they kind of look like a kitty cat face. What kid wouldn’t love cute food? I like them pretty much any way I can get them though. Crispy chips or sweet tender maduros — I love ’em. When I started eating paleo I had to give up my beloved tortilla chips (I live in Texas ya’ll, those babies are HARD to resist). I naturally gravitated to these thick, twice fried plantains. I don’t make these very often because… well… I eat them like chips! But since it is Super Bowl Sunday and all, lets do it! Tim asked for nachos… his favorite food is nachos. He LOVES them. He put in a special request for them today… and given how much I moan and groan about football all season long, it is only fair he get them. When you eat paleo, plantain nachos are where it’s at!
I use Melissa Joulwan‘s recipe from second cookbook. Well Fed 2. I swear her taco seasoning mix is the BEST. She calls for thin plaintain chips, but I just find that tostones stand up better to all those toppings.
Happy Super Bowl Sunday everybody!
