Frjioles con Platanos (Beans and Bananas) (170)

  • 3 very ripe frying bananas
  • 3 tablespoons flour
  • 4 tablespoons melted butter
  • 2/3 cup cooked or canned beans
  • 2/3 cup shortening

Mash bananas, add flour and butter and mix thoroughly. Fry the beans in one tablespoon shortening for about five minutes. Heat remaining shortening in another frying pan, add banana mixture, one tablespoon at a time, and spread with fork so that it will take the shape of a small pancake. Fry the “pancakes” for about five minutes, place a teaspoon of the fried beans on each and fold. Fry the stuffed pancakes, covered, three minutes on each side or until brown. Yield: six servings.

Note: Although the recipes calls for “frying bananas,” the authors are most likely referring to plantains.
