Tostones (Fried Plantains)
These are very simple to make. Our family loves this snack treat. We pick yellowish plantains that are beginning to turn black because they are sweeter. I just slice them at an angle to make oval like slices and fry them to a nice golden brown. Right after removal, while still on a paper towel, sprinkle just a bit of table salt to taste. Best eaten warm and alone on a long car ride or along with a meal like pork chops with rice.

Jibarito
Born and raised in Chicago as a Puerto Rican, we enjoy these with thick slices of cooked pork (Jamon) instead of steak. My personal addition is a slice of avacado. This is a very easy and special traditional meal. When preparing to take out...wrap each sandwich individually in foil to help keep ingredients together...but best fresh and hot! YUM!!!
