Fresh cheese is very popular in Mexican Latin cuisine, and almost anything can be stuffed with it. Today, you are going to learn how to make Platanos Rellenos Con Queso (Cheese Stuffed Plantains). This dish is traditionally served as an appetizer in Mexico, but it can be served alongside the main course beautifully as well.

Fun Fact About Plantains

The plantain is not grown from a seed, they are a seedless fruit. Instead, they are grown from cuttings that are then planted.

Instructions

  1. Prepare your plantains for the recipe by peeling and slicing them into thin squares about a half an inch thick, 1.5 inches wide, and 3 inches long. Then slice the cheese into slices the same size. Once you have done this, set them aside.
  2. Now, prepare the coating. Crack and place the 3 eggs on one plate, and a heaping pile of bread crumbs on another. Scramble the eggs with a fork. Add a third plate lined with paper towels for the cheese plantains once they are finished.
  3. Next, place enough oil in the pan to cover the bottom and the top of the plantains (about an inch). Allow it to heat up over medium heat.
  4. Lastly, begin making plantain/cheese "Sandwiches" by placing a slice of cheese between two slices of plantain. After building your sandwich, place it in the egg yolk mix, and cover it with bread crumbs. Then place the covered plantain in the hot oil, and allow it to cook for approximately 30 seconds on each side, or until golden brown.
  5. Remove from heat and allow to cool before enjoying!

      Hello jtrader, yes! Ripe plantains are best for this recipe. It is really yummy, I tend to have cravings for them a couple times a month.

      Thanks for reading :)

      That should be really delicious. We should use ripe plantains for this recipe right?

      I generally enjoy crushed green plantains- Jamaican style, more than ripe plantains but this should be good.
