HOW TO MAKE TOSTONES WITH MOJO DIPPING SAUCE:
  1. Make the Dipping Sauce! Add the dipping sauce ingredients into a jar with a lid and shake them until they’re well combined.
  2. Cut and Fry! Peel and cut the plantains into medium sized pieces. Heat some oil on low to medium heat and fry the plantains for 2-3 minutes until they’re golden brown. Make sure to flip them so they cook evenly. Take them out onto a paper towel to dry.
  3. Flatten! Using the bottom of a glass or a bowl, gently flatten the fried plantains. Smash them just enough that they flatten out, but don’t make them too thin, or they will break apart.
  4. Fry & Enjoy! Fry the flattened plantains until they are golden brown and take them out onto a paper towel. Sprinkle with salt and pepper, and enjoy with the Cuban Mojo Dip!Tostones (fried plantains) - a delicious street food from the Caribbean and Latin America!
