Enjoy Plantain Chips
Plantains are a member of the banana family, as you may have guessed from their appearance. They tend to be more starchy and less sweet than bananas, and are generally cooked before serving. Plantains are typically prepared as a vegetable, unlike the banana which is treated like a fruit. Throughout Latin America, plantain chips are popular as a tasty treat. Prepared from thinly sliced green plantains, the chips have an irresistible crunch and are great for dipping. Enjoy them with pico de gallo, guacamole, hot sauce, ceviche, or any other toppings. Plantain chips are also delicious straight out of the bag! They are also referred to as platanitos, mariquitas, chicharritas, and tajadas.
