International » Plantain Chips
This taste of Cuban cuisine, known as “galleticas de platano verde” and “mariquitas de platano,” plantain chips or platanitos have become a popular snack treat in America, rivaling potato chips. Mucho Gusto personal chef John Verlinden shares his technique for frying up a batch of crispy plantains. Feel free to experiment with other root vegetables such as yuca (cassava), boniatos (white sweet potato) and malanga (taro). The recipe also offers alternative baking instructions. Serve with them with your favorite salsa or John's garlicky Mojo Criollo.
