Patacones or tostones are one of the dishes I miss most from my country. I love all the recipes with green plantain, especially when they're prepared as patacones. Fortunately, growing up in a country with a great variety of fruits and vegetables, the plantain was a staple in our kitchen. Because it's so versatile, I learned many ways to prepare it and tons of recipes that also happen to be very simple. Once I came to live in this country, I continued using plantains in my dishes, including those I use for American celebrations. These chicken patacones with pink sauce make for a wonderful appetizer.

    Fry the plantain halves until they start to brown a little. Remove from the pan and use a pataconera or tortillera to carefully flatten them out so as not to break them. Once flattened, fry again until crunchy. Remove from the oil, salt to taste and leave on paper towels to remove excess oil.

Expert Tips

  • You can use whatever sauce you prefer.
  • When the time comes to flatten the plantain, you can use plastic bags between the pataconera and the plantain to avoid sticking. If you don’t have a pataconera you can flatten between two cutting boards.
