Plantain Chips are popular especially in Caribbean, Latin and African Cultures.  On a recent trip to Nicaragua MCCN Editor caught some video of local women preparing plantain chips, a staple side dish.  It’s a great snack to put on a summer table spread. Many people like to add a bit of brown sugar.  Plantain are served thin as a chip or thicker.   Click for a Recipe
