Ingredients

  • 3 small Ripe plantains Or 2 large ones
  • 100 gr White cheese Feta cheese, Provolone, Mozarella for pizza or any white cheese that melts easily
  • 4 tsp Brown or Moscavado sugar
  • 60 gr Spanish Chorizo You can also use spicy or smoked

Instructions

  1. This recipe is for a 12 x 23 cm baking tray. If you're making it in a bigger tray double or triple the quantity of each ingredient. 

  2. So the first thing is to slice the chorizo is strips, you can also use spicy or smoked chorizo if you like.

  3. Once the chorizo is chopped add it to a hot pan with no fat and let it crisp up, this should take about 5 minutes. Once done put it on kitchen paper to absorb the extra fat. I also like to tap it twice with more kitchen paper to absorb as much fat as possible.

  4. With your fingers butter a baking tray to avoid sticking and start to form the layers placing one layer of fried plantain then a layer of chorizo and a layer of the cheese. Add a tsp of sugar in between each layer,  this with the melted cheese will make a cheesy sweet syrup.

  5. Repeat the steps until you’ve reached the top of the tray.

  6. For the last layer I like to put the chorizo in between 2 layers of cheese so when baked it goes black and ultra crispy. 

  7. Once baked the top of the bake should have melted crispy cheese, if not you can put it a few minutes under the grill.

  8. Slice, serve hot and enjoy!
