Cut each end off plantain and remove peel completely. Cut the plantain into inch thick slices and put into a large bowl.

Once oil is heated, place plantains in skillet. Cook for about 5 mins flipping to evenly brown on each side. Take out of pan letting excess oil drip off. Place on plate and quickly use a large spoon to press down to desired thickness they should be soft and easy to flatten. After you have flattened each piece place them back into the hot oil and fry again for about 5 minutes flipping to even crisp and get golden brown.
