The first time I tried plantain chips was when I went on vacation to Punta cana. They sliced theirs length-wise in thin strips. They were so crispy and delicious and you could get them with every meal. I forgot about them when I got back home until seeing plantains at the grocery store the other day. I picked one up and finally got around to cooking it today! In the dominican I am sure that they fried their chips but I figured I could make them healthier by baking them instead, it worked out awesome! This is all you have to do…
-1 plantain chopped into thin slices
-1/4 tsp salt
-1/2 tsp melted coconut oil
-cayenne pepper to taste
Directions: Toss the plantain chips in a bowl with the oil and salt. Spread them out on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper and bake at 200*C for 10 minutes. Toss/flip and bake for another 10-15minutes or until crispy and slightly browned (cook less if you like them a little soft in the center). Take out and toss with your desired amount of cayenne or none at all. Enjoy! *They will harden more as they cool.
