5 Days of Plantain Day 2: Stuffed Plantains

5 Days of Plantain Day 2: Stuffed Plantains
Intro:
So the other day I was looking through my archive and I realized that only two of my most recent recipes were plantain based! (This famous one and that healthy one.) ABOMINATION! How is it possible that I, Tatashey – the one that eats plantain almost daily –  have so few plantain recipes?? I was baffled. Therefore, I have decided to honor greatness of plantain by dedicating a whole week to it. Each day, I will post a unique plantain recipe for you all to check out and try yourselves.

It’s day 2 and I am even more excited than I was yesterday! Today’s recipe: colorful stuffed plantains. A break from the usual fried plantain, the plantains in this recipe are baked first then stuffed.

Don’t forget to do this challenge yourselves and tag your favorite food bloggers as well using the #tatasheyplantainchallenge and #5daysofplantain hashtags on Instagram, Facebook & Twitter! Share this with anyone and I’d love to see the various recipes you can all come up with! You can also send me pictures via social media or on the email and I’ll post them up for others to try (if you want of course)
