This viewer says you don't need to be a pro to make crispy fried plantains—her recipe is simple, delicious + uses a kitchen secret weapon you likely already have in your house.
"If you don't have a tostonera, which is used to make these plantain chips, no problem. You have secret weapons in your kitchen," says Rebeca.
To make this recipe, peel and cut your plantains into 1-inch pieces. Then, fry them up until golden. Now, here comes the kitchen secret weapon—place each plantain piece on a plate and with the bottom of your coffee mug or in between two plates, smash it down. Then, dip them into garlic salt water, fry them again until golden brown, serve them up, and enjoy!
