Tostones are a Caribbean snack usually served as a side or an appetizer before the meal. Tostones are made with green plantains and are also called patacones in Latin American countries like Colombia, Panama, Peru and Venezuela. They can also be found in Haiti, where they are called banana pese. I discovered tostones in Puerto Rico and I became fascinated with their taste and how many versatile recipes they can be used in. Today I want to share my Mexican version of nacho tostones with black beans, grilled chicken, jalapeños, Mexican salsa and queso fresco (Mexican white cheese). Enjoy!
