My cleaning lady made these for me one day and I thought they were absolutely delicious. This is her version of Nicaraguan sweet and savory stuffed plantains. Having never had them, I don't know how authentic they are, but I know they are delicious.

  • Bring a pot of water to a boil and boil plantain until peel starts to bubble, 3 to 5 minutes. Remove from heat and cool until easily handled. Peel and mash plantain. Separate into 3 equal-sized golf balls. Place each ball into a piece of plastic wrap and form into a 6-inch round. Place 1 1/2 tablespoon Cheddar cheese into each round, fold over, and pinch edges together.

  • Heat oil in a medium size skillet on medium-high heat. Pan-fry stuffed plantains until lightly browned, 2 to 3 minutes. Flip plantains and fry for an additional 2 to 3 minutes. Drain on paper towels to absorb excess oil.

Cook's Note:

Any mild cheese, white or yellow, can be used
