  • green plantains
  • garlic cloves
  • butter
  • chicharron
  • salt and pepper


  • Trim and peel plantains. Then cut into bite-sized pieces.
  • Fry plantain chunks until golden. Then with a wooden pestle and mortar, aka pilòn, smash the garlic, butter and chicharron.
  • Add the plantains. Smash until a fine smash. Add small amounts of the used frying oil to get the plantains to mash together. Salt and pepper to taste.
  • Once it’s all mashed together, form into balls or shape of your choosing and serve with creole shrimp, fried pork, or any protein you’d like.
  • Enjoy!
