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.
