4 medium ripe plantains -- (yellow black)
1/4 cup vegetable oil
1/2 teaspoon salt and pepper -- to taste

Preparation / Directions:

To prepare plantains this way, they have to be dead ripe. If only green ones are available, you should use the the method for Deep-Fried Plantain Rounds. Either way is fine. You will find that this preparation results in plantains that are a bit more floppy than the chips made from the green variety, so I suggest you spoon the dip onto them and eat them with a fork. Peel plantains and cut on a severe slant into 1/2-inch slices. In a large sauté pan, heat the oil over medium heat until hot but not smoking. Add as many plantain slices as will fit easily in a single layer, and fry until just lightly browned, about 1 minute per side. As they brown, remove them to paper towels to drain, then sprinkle well with salt and pepper. Repeat until all the plantain slices are fried.
