  • 3 Remove and drain plantains and mash them with heavy cream and butter.
  • 4 Add egg and combine well.

  • 7 In a pan add oil and sauté onions and peppers.
  • 8 Once tender, add meat and cook.

  • 12 Cover with another layer of mashed plantain.
  • 13 Finally cover the casserole with a layer of grated cheddar cheese.
