"The filling for tostones rellenos can vary greatly: ceviche, octopus salad, pico de gallo, salsa, garlic shrimp, etc. These are stuffed with picadillo (seasoned ground beef) and cheese, but use your imagination. The possibilities are endless!"

This is definitely a crowd pleaser! Fill them with your favorite toppings or with nothing at all. I used the beef filling from the recipe except that I added a handful of golden raisins to it. My daughters loved them!
My husband is from Puerto Rico, and after eating so many delicious Puerto Rican meals, this recipe made my mouth water as I read it. Our 4 yr old daughters devoured this! I used Adobo to season the tostones/plantain after the 2nd frying. We also made our own sofrito and froze the extras- well worth it and easy!! This recipe is a keeper!
Watched the video. Very easy to make. The boys loved smashing them.
