Spicy Green Plantain Crisps

Preparation

1
Cut ends off plantains. Cut plantains into thirds.
2
Put half of the plantains into a plastic bag and put in microwave.
3
Cook on high for about 3 minutes until plantains are fairly soft. This time may vary according to your microwave.
4
Prepare the rest of the plantains in the same way.
5
Put a large frying pan or wok on stove to heat up with enough oil to cover plantains.
6
Leaving the cooked plantains in the plastic bag, put an oven mitt on your hand and place entire bag on a firm flat surface, such as your countertop.
7
Press firmly down on each piece of plantain in the bag- you want to flatten it.
8
Remove from plastic bag and peel away the skin. You should have a fairly flat wide piece of plantain.
9
Cut each into "fingers" about 1 inch wide.
10
Fry in hot oil until golden brown and crisp.
11
Drain cooked plantain on paper towels and season immediately with sea salt, chile powder and cumin.
12
Serve hot and enjoy!
