  • 3 medium Plantains
US Customary - Metric
  1. Bring a large pot of water to a boil. Slice the ends off of the plantains and cut into 5-6 rounds. Boil for about 15-20 minutes or until they are easily pierced with a fork. Drain.

  2. Peel the outer peel off of the plantains and toss the plantains into a blender. Blend just until they come together into a dough. Remove the dough and place in a bowl. Knead once or twice and then divide into 12 balls.
  3. Place a piece of plastic (I use a cut ziploc bag) on a tortilla press and place a piece of dough on the press. Top with another piece of plastic and press. **You can also use a rolling pin if you don't have a press.
  4. Heat a well-seasoned cast-iron skillet over high heat and cook one tortilla at a time about 1 minute on each side until lightly browned and toasted. Repeat until you've cooked all of the tortillas.
