whole green plantains, unpeeled
ground black pepper
1 1/2 cups
queso fresco, cut into 1/2 inch cubes
vegetable oil for frying
This is a good recipe. Just a few modifications: since queso fresco does not melt, I will probably use a different cheese next time (maybe Monterrey cubes or even pepperjack). Also, make sure to reserve some of the water from boiling the plantains to add to when mashing, otherwise they are too dry and will crumble when molding into balls. Finally, if you are a garlic lover you can add a couple of pressed cloves or some garlic powder when mashing, it will enhance the flavor. Serve with avocado and some sewed meat and presto!
Good recipe. I suggest cooking it a few minutes longer and serve with a red enchilada sauce.
