Tostones or fried plantain slices are a typical dish in many Latin American countries, especially in Central America and the Caribbean.
On the island of Puerto Rico and in the Dominican Republic, green plantains are a favorite side dish for almost every meal. Plantains can be prepared fried as tostones (patacones), filled, or cooked with meat as mangu or mofongo (savory garlic plantains.) We’ll never lose a plantain, even if they get too ripe; they can filled with ground beef to make canoas, simply fried (amarillos), or served in syrup (plátanos en almíbar).
