    • 2 whole Green Chiquita Plantains
    • 2 cups Vegetable Oil
    • 1 cup Your Choice of Topping - shrimp ceviche, pulled chicken or avocado salad


Pour about 2 inches of oil in small, deep pot and turn burner on medium high. Slice Chiquita Plantains in 1 1/2 inch sections (you should get about 6 pieces per plantain). Once oil is hot, cook for about one minute. Place cut-side-up on a solid surface. Carefully press down and flatten the Chiquita Plantain with the bottom of the frying pan or other flat surface (like bottom of a drinking glass). Cook in hot oil for two minutes or until they turn golden. Place on paper towel to absorb any extra oil. Serve with your choice of toppings such as shrimp ceviche, pulled chicken or avocado salad.
