Excellent. I used very ripe plantains, a cheap mozzarella, shaved, and Mrs. Renfro's (mild) salsa. Made for a great hors d'oeuvre. Thanks for the great recipe.

My first time trying this fruit! I liked the recipe, just missing some salt. Maybe I didn’t put enough cheese? I tried with garlic salt and it did taste better. A keeper for sure!

Mine were suuuper dry

mmm, love this. so deeeelish....or you can just shred the cheeses and sprinkle it over top the platanitos. mmiyyummi
