Crispy Plantain Chips

Wintery weather is making me dream of warmer places to be. So I thought it would be a good idea to post a healthy warmer weather snack recipe for afternoon snacking. This snack reminds me of our road trip through Kerala that wouldn't have been complete without a big bag of street vendor made Plantain chips. That, however, was not my first introduction to plantain chips...When I was growing up, every once in a while as a treat, mom would get me and my siblings a bag of Goya plantain chips. They were so crispy and crunchy with just the right amount of salt and sometimes garlic, yum! I remember the first time our friend Sumintra gave us some of her homemade chips with mango salsa, delicious! It has become a tradition since to ask for her chips at get togethers, but there just never seems to be enough haha! While making your own is relatively easy, the challenge is not polishing them off before you finish cooking them all! Now that being said, be prepared to make more pretty soon after the first batch! This is a great anytime, anywhere healthy snack.

Here is my recipe:
