Here is what you’ll need!
CHEESY PLANTAIN TOTS
Makes: 20 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
Grate the green plantains into a large mixing bowl.
Add salt, pepper, and chili powder, and mix to combine.
Wrap one slice of cheese around a hot dog link and cut into fifths.
Take one tablespoon of your plantain mixture and encase one slice of the cheese-wrapped hot dog, shaping into a cylindrical “tot.”
Repeat until all slices are covered and shaped, and place on a parchment-lined baking sheet.
Freeze one hour.
In a large pot over medium-high heat, heat your oil to 375ºF/190ºC.
Drop four to five tots into the oil and fry until golden brown, about one to two minutes.
Place on a paper towel to drain excess oil.
Serve warm with your favorite dipping sauce!
