There isn't much to this "recipe" for fried plantains, just plantains and oil. You can use any vegetable oil
(though I wouldn't use olive oil), I used peanut oil because it's what I had at hand. Make sure to use very ripe plantains,
look for blackish spots on the peel.
Heat an inch of oil in a wide pan until very hot but not smoking.
Slice the plantains at an angle into 1/3" chips. Fry the plantains until golden in one side, turn, and repeat with the
other side. Remove with a slotted spoon and place on paper towels to drain. Serve hot.
Adapted from several recipes.
