Plantain Chips & Salsa
After visiting Puerto Rico, my colleague challenged me to device a healthier version of a fun snack that wasn't fried. Here's my version:
Peel and slice thinly 1 plantain. Toss in a cinnamon-sugar mixture and baked at 400 degrees for 15 minutes. Serve with tropical fruit salsa which includes a fresh diced tomato, diced green pepper, diced celery, garlic and diced canned tropical fruit.
The picture of me is from last year. My exhibit is in the Food Court where I get lots of traffic. I'll have some 3000 recipes to distribute and 1000 bananas. Since I'm there 12 hours, I'll have plenty of time to do that which I enjoy.
