  • Summary

    For an elegant change of pace from store-bought tortilla chips, fry thin slices of plantain at home. When slipped into hot oil, the plantains curve into beautiful, long strips. Delicately flavored and impossibly crisp, these chips are great for dipping in guacamole.

    Ingredients

    • About 4 cups vegetable oil
    • 2 pounds green plantains
    • Equipment: a deep-fat thermometer; an adjustable-blade slicer or Y-shaped vegetable peeler
