    Cheesy Stuffed Plantain Tots


    3 green plantains

    1 teaspoon salt

    1 teaspoon pepper

    1 teaspoon chili powder

    4 slices mozzarella cheese

    4 hot dogs (or other prefered sausage)

    Oil, for frying


    1. Grate the green plantains into a large mixing bowl.

    2. Add salt, pepper, and chili powder, and mix to combine.

    3. Wrap one slice of cheese around a hot dog link and cut into fifths.

    4. Take one tablespoon of your plantain mixture and encase one slice of the cheese-wrapped hot dog, shaping into a cylindrical “tot.”

    5. Repeat until all slices are covered and shaped, and place on a parchment-lined baking sheet.

    6. Freeze one hour.

    7. In a large pot over medium-high heat, heat your oil to 375ºF/190ºC.

    8. Drop four to five tots into the oil and fry until golden brown, about one to two minutes.

    9. Place on a paper towel to drain excess oil.

    10. Serve warm with your favorite dipping sauce!

    11. Enjoy!
