    Sweet Plantain Canoes!

    Made these for dinner last night! AMAZING!!

    Canoas de Platanos Maduros (Sweet Plantain Canoes)

    Canoas de Platanos Maduros (Sweet Plantain Canoes) (serves 4 with leftover filling)

    Filling

    1 lbs ground beef
    1 onion,minced
    3 gloves garlic, minced
    1 green pepper, minced
    1/2 cup chopped cilantro
    2 tsp adobo
    2 tsp oregano
    2 Tbs vinegar
    1 envelope sazón
    2 bay leaves
    8 green stuffed olives, halved
    1/2 cup raisins
    1/4 cup tomato sauce
    Canoas

    4 ripe plantains, peeled
    1/2 cup white shredded cheese (like Monterey Jack or Swiss)
    vegetable oil
    Pre-heat oven to 350 degrees.

    Combine, beef, onion, pepper, garlic, cilantro, adobo, oregano, vinegar and sazon. Mix well.

    Heat a large skillet at medium-high heat with 2 Tbs of olive oil, add meat mixture.

    Cook beef until brown and of the juices bubble up, add bay leaves, olives, raisins and tomato sauce. Mix and let simmer for 10 minutes, set aside.

    Heat a large frying pan with about 2 inches of vegetable oil, just enough to cover the plantains. Fry plantains for 8 – 10 minutes or until golden and slitely crispy. Drain on a plate with paper towel, set aside.

    To assemble canoas: when the plantains are cool enough to handle, cut a slit down the inside curve of the plantain. Using your knife and a fork, gently pry the plantain open until it opens and resembles a canoe. Fill the plantain with some shredded cheese, stuff with meat mixture and top with more shredded cheese. Transfer the stuffed plantains to a baking dish sprayed with non-stick spray.

    Bake in oven at 350 degrees for 15 – 20 minutes, or until the cheese is melted and browned. Garnish with chopped cilantro and serve immediately.

    The only thing I changed was I didn't use olives, raisins, onions and peppers because I don't like them. I just added a little minced onion seasoning.

    Yum! That sounds pretty good to me! I'd leave out the raisins I think though, I'm not a fan either! I don't mind the rest though!
