Tostones or Patacones are crispy double-fried plantains that are enjoyed throughout the different Latin American countries. Like French fries, tostones can be served with any meal. Fresh plantains are sliced, smashed and then fried in golden GOYA® Corn Oil. Allowing them to dry and then frying them again gives the tostones their characteristic crispy crunch. Sprinkle with GOYA® Adobo All-Purpose Seasoning with Pepper and serve hot for a real Latin treat.

Step 1

Peel plantains (see below for tip). Cut into diagonal slices, about ¾” thick.

Step 2

Heat 1” oil in medium heavy pot over medium-high heat until oil reaches 325°F. Fry plantains, flipping once, until completely tender, but not crisp, about 3-4 minutes. Transfer to paper towel to drain and cool. Place plantain round between two pieces of wax or parchment paper. Using heel of palm or skillet, press down on plantain to flatten; repeat with remaining plantain rounds.

Step 3

Increase oil heat to 375°F. Fry plantains, flipping once, until crisp and golden on both sides, about 2 minutes. Transfer to paper towel to drain; season with Adobo. Serve hot.

Tip by La Cocina Goya

How to Peel a Plantain

To peel a plantain, using paring knife, cut of both ends of plantains, discarding tips. Next, make 4 lengthwise slits in the peel, only cutting as deep as the peel is thick. Using your hands, remove the peel in sections. Use your knife to remove any remnants of peel left on the flesh.
