Recipe Notes

Some meat options could be sausage, ham or bacon. You can also add smoked fish.

Feel free to use any beans, but note that plantains might take a little longer to cook and your beans could be mushy.

This can also be made in a crockpot, after sautéing plantains with onions and garlic, transfer to a crockpot and cook on medium  until plantains are tender.
