Kraft Kitchen Tips!
Yellow plantains are often spotted with brownish-black flecks which are a sign that the sugars in the fruit have begun to develop. At this stage, the plantain is more tender, but still firm, with a creamy texture and slightly sweeter, more pronounced, banana flavour.
Bananas and plantains are not interchangeable. While they are close relatives, plantains are usually cooked before they are eaten.
Chop the remaining avocado half and use it to garnish the filled plantain cups just before serving. If desired, you can also top each filled cup with a sprig of additional fresh cilantro for more colour.
How to Use Remaining Tomatoes
Spoon remaining drained canned tomatoes into airtight container. Refrigerate up to 5 days before adding to your favourite soup, stew or pasta sauce recipe.
