What’s a party without some chips and dip? I like offering my guests a Latino option in addition to tortilla chips and salsa; something they may not see at an average party. So here you are - a recipe for plantain chips and black bean dip! While plantains are often found in Caribbean cooking, they are also used in the food of my Mami’s native country, Peru. In this recipe I baked the chips instead of frying to cut back on some fat. MORE + LESS -

    Peel the plantains by cutting tips and scoring skin lengthwise in about four places.

    Slice the plantains into thin rounds (tip: use a mandolin or slicer on the side of most graters). Grease cookie sheets using olive oil spray or other cooking spray. Lay plantain slices out on the baking sheets without overlapping. Spray plantains with the olive oil spray or cooking spray. Bake 10 to 15 minutes or until crispy.

    While chips cook, heat tablespoon of vegetable oil over medium heat in a small frying pan. Add onion and garlic and sauté until fragrant. Remove from heat. In a food processor or blender, puree the black bean soup, onions and garlic.

    Put the black bean mixture in a microwaveable bowl and mix in the grated Queso Blanco. Microwave for four minutes, or until hot throughout, stirring periodically. Garnish with one tablespoon grated cheese. Serve immediately.

Expert Tips
