Papa's Totones

Saucing...Learn To Make Sauces With The Confidence Of A Trained Chef. Discover How To Transform Everyday Meals Into New Taste Sensations With A Few Simple Ingredients. All This With A Dash Of Creativity To Satisfy A Hungry Palate.

Yield: Approx. 15-20 totones
Time: Approx. 30 min.


  • 2 large Plantains
  • Goya Adobo
  • Goya Sazone
  • 1/4 cup olive or vegetable oil
  • Oil for frying (deep fry)


  • Peel Plantains

Score the plantains peel from end to end in equal distances around plantain. I usually make 3-4 scores.

  • Cut Plantain in 1 - 1/12 inch diagonal chunks (clock- 10 & 5)
You should be able to get 6-10 cuts

  • Rinse plantain pieces and dry.
  • Place in bowl and coat with 1/4 cup oil.
  • season with adobo and sazone to taste.
  • Let set an hour to absorb seasoning.
In hot deep fryer (you can use shallow fry if you choose, turning them) fry to just golden, NOT BROWNED.
Remove from grease. Drain and cool on paper towel.

One by one, flatten each plantain a bit. You can do them all together between 2 cutting boards or 2 flat surfaces.

Do not flatten too much, just allow them to spread out slightly (1/4 inch thick)

Return the flattened plantains to the fryer and fry until dark golden brown and crisp.

Serve immediately with Papa's Garlic Dipping Sauce
