Mayo-Ketchup Sauce

  • 2 tbsp mayonnaise
  • 2 tbsp ketchup
  • 1 tsp hot sauce
  • 1 tsp minced garlic


  • 2 green plantains
  • 1 cup vegetable oil for frying
  • salt to taste


  • In a small bowl mix together all sauce ingredients and sit to the side.
  • To prep the plantains, they need to be peeled and sliced. Begin by cutting the ends of the plantain. Then make three shallow cuts the length of the plantain. You only want to cut int the skin of the plantain. Now it is easier to peel the skin off. Cut the plantain in 1 inch pieces at a diagonal.
  • Heat vegetable oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. For the first fry, place plantain pieces in a single layer and fry for 4 minutes on each side until golden brown. Drain on a paper towel lined dish.
  • Once cool enough to handle, flatten plantains using tortilla press or bottom of a glass.
  • For the second fry, place flattened plantains in hot oil and fry for 4 minutes to get them crisp. Fry in batches if necessary to not over crowd the frying pan. Drain on another paper towel lined dish and season with a pinch of salt.
