It is hard to go wrong with plantains–from the green ones perfect for tostones to the blackest, over-ripe plantains that make candy-like maduros. For these stuffed plantains recipe, look for plantains that are yellow with a few black spots. They should be firm enough to hold their shape but sweet enough to complement a savory, spice-filled picadillo made with ground turkey. MORE + LESS -

  • 1
    Preheat oven to 400º F. Lightly brush a baking pan with butter.
  • 2
    Make a deep, lengthwise cut in each plantain. Brush well with melted butter and place in the baking pan. Roast until cooked through and browned, between 35-40 minutes.
  • 3
    In the meantime, heat the oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Add the onion, garlic, salt, oregano, pepper and cumin, and sauté until the onion is soft and translucent, about 5 minutes. Add the ground turkey, breaking it up so there are no lumps, about 3-5 minutes. Stir in the tomatoes and corn, and bring to a simmer. Cook covered until most of the liquid has evaporated and the turkey is cooked through, about 10-15 minutes. Adjust the seasoning to taste.
  • 4
    Stuff each of the baked plantains with a heaping spoonful of the turkey mixture. Cover with cheese and return to the oven. Continue to bake until the cheese is melted, about 10 additional minutes.

    Serve and enjoy!
