Plátanos Maduros (fried sweet ripe plantains)

Plantains. One of my favorite starchy foods! Since moving to Miami, I've been eating them a lot more often. All the grocery stores sell them -- even the little mom and pop markets. And they're cheap! Around $0.59-0.99/pound. You can also find the on the menu at a majority of restaurants in town. Unfortunately, though, pretty much all of those restaurants are going to be frying their plantains in unhealthy rancid omega-6 vegetable oils. Luckily, cooking plantains at home in a healthy cooking fat is super fast and easy. This post will teach you how to cook Plátanos Maduros (just "maduros" for short), which are made from ripened (black/yellow) plantains and are sweet.
