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.

 

Enjoy this simple recipe and let me know how you fancied it in the comment s. I would love to see how you prepared this dish so be sure to hash tag #bonitaapplecrumb on Instagram when you try it!

  • 36 hour turkey bath = Juicy, flavorful, and tender to the bone turkey. For my brine I used Homemade vegetable stock, water, Hawaiian Chile sea salt, Aleppo pepper, sugar, sweet peppers, and 3 types of Chile’s, cilantro, onion, thyme and pink peppercorns. Submerge turkey into the brine, cover and fridge for a day or two. .

  • The perfect gumbo is all in the roux and of coarse the ingredients such as: Finely chopped seasonings known as the trinity, blue crab, gulf shrimp, andouille sausage, chicken and spices. The best gumbo I ever ate in my life came from a little old lady in Lafayette Louisiana, my goodness it was great. I’ve attempted over many years to recreate that taste and I have nailed it to the wall with this one. Gumbo is work y’all, but I promise it’s worth it. Recipe coming soon❤️ .
