Plantain Chips and Guacamole

serves 3 - 4 as an appetizer

2 cups oil

2 large plantains

sea salt

2 avocados

2 garlic cloves, minced

juice from 2 limes


In a large frying pan, heat the oil on medium-high heat.

Peel the plantains. Cut them in half. Thinly slice lengthwise with a mandoline, to the thickness of a tortilla chip. Place a few pieces of plantain, enough to not crowd the oil, in the frying pan, and fry until crispy and light brown, approximately 4 minutes. Place the cooked plantains onto a paper towel to drain the excess oil. Sprinkle with salt. Continue frying the rest of the plantains.

In a bowl, smash together the avocado, garlic and lime juice. Season with salt. 

Serve with the plantain chips.
