Jalapeno Bacon Mofongo
A Puerto Rican-inspired dish made with plaintains, bacon, and jalapenos- naturally free of dairy, grains, and guilt!
- 2 tbs ghee
- 2 large plaintains
- 3 pieces bacon cooked
- 2 tbs jalapeno finely chopped
- 1 garlic clove finely chopped
- 1/2 tsp sea salt
- 1/4 tsp smoked paprika
Peel and slice the plantains into 1/2" slices. Heat ghee in a skillet over meadium-high heat.
Add the plantain slices to the skillet and fry for 5-6 minutes or until golden brown on both sides. Add chopped garlic saute for 30 seconds.
Remove from heat and set the plantains/garlic aside in the large bowl.
Dice the bacon into small pieces. Add the bacon, jalapenos, and spices to the bowl. Mash with a potato masher until a slightly chunky consistency is achieved.
