Our most popular appetizer is fried plantains served over black bean puree, all drizzled with a little (or a lot) of sour cream. Make sure the plantains are ripe; the skin should be almost completely black. Fried plantains are also great served by themselves.
1 1/2 cups vegetable oil
3 ripe plantains, peeled and cut into 2-inch diagonal slices
2 cups cooked black beans, drained
1/3 cup sour cream
Fried Plantains Recipe at
In a large, heavy skillet over medium heat, heat the oil until it is fragrant and fry the plantains for 4-6 minutes, or until they are a dark golden brown. Using a slotted spoon, transfer them to paper towels to drain.

Puree the beans in a blender or food processor, adding some broth from the beans if the puree is too thick.

Make a bed of puree on each of 6 small plates and top with the plantains. Drizzle with the sour cream. Serve warm.
