How to Make Beef-filled ripe Plantains/Canoas

Step-by-Step

  • 1Cook ground beef, season to taste.
  • 2Peel the plantains carefully to make sure they do not break. You need whole plantains and appearance is quite important in this dish.
  • 3Preheat 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.
  • 4Remove from the oil when golden brown.
    Soak off excess oil by draining on paper towels.
  • 5Slit each plantain lengthwise, about an inch from each end, half as deep as the plantain's circumference.
  • 6Place about two tablespoonfuls of the filling inside the slit in each plantain.
  • 7Place 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.
