Green (unripe) plantains


Extra virgin olive oil

Pork rinds (optional)


Vegetable oil or preferred frying oil

Heat the frying oil in a deep fryer pan. Cut the plantains into about 1 inch length pieces. Once the oil is hot, fry the plantains until golden to golden/brown. Take the plantains out and wait about a minute for them to cool down. In a pilón (wooden mortar) smash one garlic, add about a tablespoon of the olive oil, about an inch of the pork rinds and a hint of oregano, then add about 3-4 pieces of the fried plantain and smash them to mix. Once everything is mixed make a ball with your hands.
