Tostones rellenos is one of the Caribbean’s most traditional Latin dish. Roughly translated, tostones rellenos are stuffed tostones, or fried smashed green plantains. While some restaurants mold their tostones into cup form to literally stuff them with ingredients, the tostones are traditionally flat when prepared at home. The mixture of ingredients that you can choose to “stuff” the tostones with (ie. chicken, beef, sausage, vegetables, etc.) are simply placed atop of the tostone.
This makes for a quick appetizer for a party or a zesty side to any Latin dish. To save time, this recipe calls for ready-to-fry tostones that you can pick up in the frozen food section of your local Latin market. You can switch out the chicken for either sausage or steak as well depending on your preference. Read More
