Fried Plantain & Black Bean Burrito

The Little Chihuahua

Serious Eats
... plantains are the clear stars of this sweet bundle. A skinny-dip in the deep fryer paints a mahogany shell around each bulky piece. Firmer than a banana and not as floral, their fruitiness dominates a supporting cast of roasted red peppers, rice and beans, and pico de gallo. The smidgen of sour cream and cheese might as well exit stage left; you can hardly taste them. Drizzle on some smoky chipotle salsa from the salsa bar or break for intermission with a bite of accompanying cabbage slaw. It's uncomfortably sharp but will clear your palate for more plantain.
