    We eat fried plantains with eggs for breakfast, mexican night plates, or with beef barbacoa salads and bowls! They make for a perfect carb, especially when you’re craving a little something sweet.

      That’s exactly how I make my plantains! So easy and delicious! I’ve been obsessed with plantains ever since my trip to the Caribbean last year and my determination to figure out how to make them myself once I got home 🙂
