there are many explanation but one of them is fried plantain,
when I was a kid I simply loved plantain salted chips with chesse, and it was the first thing I cooked myself, so is very easy. One of the secret to make chips is to get it crispy on the outside and keep a good color.
This is perfect tapa for dinner or maybe to watch a movie, no kidding :)
-2 plantains peeled
Heat oil in a 5-quart heavy pot over moderate heat. While oil is heating cut the plantain using a knife in thin chips, like is showed in the pic
To check if the oil is hot enough just trough a chip in there, if the chip fried and float immediately is ready.
To make it in thin strips, cut the plantain lengthwise with a peeler or manual a knife into very thin strips.
Fry them, but not together, first the chips and then the strips, turning frequently, until golden, 30 to 45 seconds.
Transfer with tongs to paper towels and sprinkle crisps immediately with salt.
see? is easy and tasty! look how it looks...yummy! you can serve it with chesse or a sauce or deep like guacamole, or saltziki...what ever you want!
