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.

  • It's no secret we LOVE! Desserts around here, but eating balanced is key. Desserts taste so much better after eating all your veggies❤️ I gotta say we rarely catch colds and flus around here 🤞🏼and I'm convinced it's because the diet is balanced. I give the kids a shot of apple cider vinegar too, it taste like feet but I believe it works. Try a new veggie for your family this week, and keep adding a new one thereafter. Make salads brilliant, and bright like you 😊

And the hours go by so fast I hardly have a chance to whip them pots up 😂 For me the quickest way to make sure them kids eating there veggies is by roasting them. Toss in some olive oil with garlic salt & peppa, roast for 15-20 mins and there ya have it! I like to serve them with tortillas for veggies tacos 🌮 kids love them 🍅🥕🥗 ________________________________
