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.

  • Saturday cooking never looked so delightful. I made a vibrant Israeli cous-cous salad full of fresh herbs ๐ŸŒฟ. .

Whipped up some Korean potato mash OMG so good. Made some dill date nectar glazed carrots and bbq turkey meatballs. One of the best Saturday meals Iโ€™ve ever cooked. Whatโ€™s cooking in the pot this weekend yโ€™all? Or whereโ€™s the bbq!!?
  • It felt so good being back in the kitchen cooking a homemade gourmet-ish meal. I literally woke up and thought green enchilada chicken soup ๐Ÿฒ And there ya have it. Simple ingredients and full of flavor. Follow my insta-story to see how it all came together.
  • Breaking the fast๐Ÿฅž
  • This isnโ€™t about food, but all about my Cousin and her black excellence. Shes been a nurse over 15 years now! And she has climbed up every professional ladder in her field since. ๐Ÿงช .

  • I tried peeling this pineapple ๐Ÿ with my fingers like a girl I saw on a video ๐Ÿคฆ๐Ÿฝโ€โ™€๏ธ first: She either had a riper pineapple, or some strong fingers, cause it was not peeling apart like that for me. Lastly, that method must only apply to people stranded on an island she made it look too easy. Last lastly, my son asked if I ate this pineapple like that with a confused look ๐Ÿ˜‚ He thought I was a savage for a minute. But it did make a cute little heart ๐Ÿ’›
  • Definitely in the category of vegan snack food. ๐ŸŒฑ Tostones with my favorite Guacamole ๐Ÿฅ‘ Plant based drip. Happy Mardi Gras New Orleans๐Ÿ’›๐Ÿ’š๐Ÿ’œ
