Rellenitos de Platáno

Ingredients

  • 6 plantains peeled and broken into chunks
  • 1 16 oz can refried black beans
  • 1 tablespoon white sugar
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 quart oil for frying

Instructions

  1. Place the plantains in a large pot and cover with water.
  2. Bring to a boil, then reduce heat and simmer until tender, 15 minutes, then drain and mash.
  3. In a small saucepan over low heat, heat the refried beans and stir in the sugar and salt, mix well then remove from heat.
  4. To make the rellenitos, form a palm-sized amount of mashed plantains into a ball; flatten and place about a teaspoon of the bean mixture in the middle; then mold the sides of the plantain around the beans, making an egg-shaped ball.
  5. Heat oil in a deep-fryer or large skillet to 375 degrees F or until a small amount of batter sizzles and browns in the oil.
  6. Fry rellenitos in oil until browned and drain on paper towels.
