Easy Fried Plantain Chips and Mango Sour

It’s time to rev up your snack game by trying this super easy, savory, Caribbean snack. All that’s needed are a few simple ingredients and you’re on the way to delicious Caribbean style chips and dip!

Chips

Golden fried plantains.

To get  nice crunchy plantain chips you want to buy a green plantain. Green plantains are wonderful for frying just as you would fry potato’s for fries. But, what stands out for this simple snack is the beautiful dip better known as mango sour. The mango sour compliments the plantain chips in a luscious way with a tangy, hint of spice, and savory taste wrapped up in one. My taste buds were having a carnival in my mouth, speaking of carnival I’m sure it’s carnival time somewhere.

Chips

Mango Sour

All you need to get these plantain chips rolling are;

  • Grape-seed oil for frying
  • A blender for pulsing the mango mix
  • A frying pan

Doesn’t get any more simple than that, and for the ingredients all you will need is;

  • Mango’s
  • Garlic
  • Scotch bonnet pepper
  • Cumin powder
  • Salt
  • Water
  • Green plantains

A whopping 7 ingredients that’s all! I love a good complex recipe but every now and then you need a quick, tasty, and simple recipe in your kitchen arsenal. Now, to make this recipe even more simple you can purchase the plantain chip already made and just prepare the mango sour. It wont be as fun as frying your own plantain chips, but it’s still an option. And you can find bagged plantain chips in most grocery stores in the “ethnic” food aisle.

This Caribbean snack derived from the island of Guyana where the people are beautiful and the food is top-notch. Guyana is most definitely on my list of places to visit, but for now I’ll enjoy a piece of the Guyanese culture for my snack.

  • The first juice is my infamous beet, pomegranate and cherry juice 🥤 If you are looking for a full gut cleanse, well baby this is it. Make absolutely no plans for the evening after drinking two glasses of this😂 .
.

The second juice is spinach, apple and ginger, delicious is an understatement to this drink. Cheers to good health!
  • The level of cold it is outside simply makes no sense at all! I don’t get folks who believe in global warming, How Sway!?! How? .

Ok, lemme stop ranting and talk about this pot of delicious ova here. Vegan Roasted Veggie Pasta! It was so simple just use a pasta made with no eggs, season, (I used one pack of  sazon to flavor up) and roast zucchini, butternut squash, grape tomatoes and onions on 425 for about 15 minutes. Cook pasta, drain, reserve some of the pasta water about half of it, add vegan butter (soy free kind) canned fire roasted tomatoes and one vegetable bouillon cube. This will be your sauce. Take about 3 tablespoons of the sauce, add 1 tablespoon of cornstarch, stir until combined and add back into the sauce (this is to thicken up the sauce). Add pasta back in, add roasted veggies stir add some oregano, salt and pepper to taste adjust seasoning if you need to, squeeze a lemon wedge to finish it off and boom 💥
  • Ginger, Fennel, Orange = Medicine. Slice the ginger thin, cut your oranges in segments, julienne your fennel and squeeze the leftover orange parts for the juices. And my friends you have created a tasty bowl of pure cold-flu fighting medicine.
  • This was two years ago today, thanks Facebook for the reminder. I’m excited to do a few of these this season and I absolutely love seeing the varieties that are made from my beloved hometown New Orleans 💚💜💛 Happy Kings Day!
  • Divine is an understatement of how delicious this salad was. Arugula has a mildly spicy taste, it’s also known as rocket in some countries. Whatever you choose to call it these tasty green leaves instantly elevates a salad. Not to mention sweet pomegranate seeds and blackberries add texture and natural sweetness. Oh! And the dressing! To live for! Swipe for the recipe🥗 .

  • Instead of adding croutons to your salad, add salad to your crouton. Genius! A simple spring mixed salad with sweet grape tomatoes on top of a buttery- toasted pecorino romano cheese crusted bread. Drizzle your salad with your fave vinaigrette, salt & pepper and enjoy 😉. Bonita, Bonita, Bonita...
  • Check out my story for this wonderful pasta dish! It’s was the bomb! I used @raoshomemade sweet eggplant sauce, so that saved me some cooking time. .

The pasta shell is stuffed with a sweet Italian sausage-mushroom ricotta-mozzarella filling, on top of a herbed Panko crusted eggplant. Parmesan and basil topped off with more sauce, the family was pleased 😄 #nobsfood
