Directions Step-By-Step

1
Cook ground beef, season to taste.
2
Peel the plantains carefully to make sure they do not break. You need whole plantains and appearance is quite important in this dish.
3
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. While the oven preheats fry the plantains in enough oil to cover them. Be careful while handling so that plantains do not break.
4
Remove from the oil when golden brown.
Soak off excess oil by draining on paper towels.
5
Slit each plantain lengthwise, about an inch from each end, half as deep as the plantain's circumference.
6
Place about two tablespoonfuls of the filling inside the slit in each plantain.
7
Place the plantains side by side in an ovenproof dish. Spread the shredded cheddar or mozarella cheese over the filling.
Bake in the oven for around ten minutes.
