Fried Plantain Chip Recipe
1 slightly green plantain
Prepare your tortilla press by lining it with a freezer bag with the sides cut out.
Slice plantain at an angle to get a long, oval slice. If the plantain is too green to easily remove the skin, carefully cut the skin off of each slice.
Prepare a wire rack above a wide, long pan for draining.
Preheat your canola oil (or other oil with a high smoke point) in a narrow, deep pan like a soup pan. Heat to 365F and you are ready to fry!
Place in the freezer bag lining your tortilla press and press down on the handle to create a large, flat “chip”.
Gently peel off your “chip” and carefully drop in the oil. Fry until golden brown on both sides. Remove chip from oil with a wire strainer and place on wire rack to cool. Season with a tiny smidgen of salt, and generous sprinkles of sugar and cinnamon.
Continue frying until all chips are done. You can place the rack (if oven safe) in an oven on 200F to keep warm if desired.
Serve and enjoy!
