"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!"

canola oil for frying
green plantains, peeled and sliced crosswise into fourths
lean ground beef
1 (1.41 ounce) package
pitted green olives, chopped
shredded Cheddar cheese
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!
Watched the video. Very easy to make. The boys loved smashing them.
