Plantain Nachos

Plantain Nachos

Nachos!!!  YAY!!!  Replace tortilla chips with baked sliced plantains, a healthier alternative that still give you a great crunch and taste fantastic. Although they look like bananas, plantains are actually NOT sweet when green. They are more starchy, which make them a nice substitute for chips as they taste more like a potato than a banana.

Instructions
For the plantain chips
  1. Peel and cut plantains into super thin slices. The easiest way to peel a plantain is to first cut the ends and then make about 3 or 4 cuts in the peel lengthwise down the plantain. Do not cut down through the meat – just the skin. Then start at one end and peel the skin down. The key to crunchy chips is slicing the plantain really thin. It’s helpful to use a mandolin vegetable slicer to get super thin slices.
