So, what is plátano macho?

Plátano Macho, also known as "cooking plantain," is a starchy fruit commonly found in Latin American cuisine. Unlike the sweet banana, plátano macho has a thicker skin and flesh that ranges from light green to yellow in color. It is typically used for savory dishes, such as tostones (twice-fried plantains), mofongo (mashed plantains with garlic and pork cracklings), or maduros (sweet ripe plantains). Plátano macho is a great source of potassium, fiber, and vitamins A and C, making it a healthy and delicious addition to any meal.
