Chicken & Plantain Nachos

This recipe was inspired by Tostones Con Pollo from Bahama Breeze Restaurant. They are SO good. Instead of tortilla chips, you use fried plantains. 10/10 recommend.


  • 1 pound chicken breast, cut into small chunks.

  • 1/2 packet of taco seasoning

  • 1/2 lime

  • a little bit of cooking oil

Cut up your chicken into small pieces. Season with taco seasoning + lime juice and cook in a pan with some oil over medium heat. Keep stirring it every couple of minutes.


  • 1 can of black beans

  • 1 bell pepper (I used half a yellow and half a green) diced up.

  • 2 cloves of garlic, minced.

  • A handful of green olives, cut into 4s.

  • Other 1/2 of the taco seasoning packet

Add a can of black beans and some water (1/2 cup or so) to a pot. Chop the bell pepper, garlic, and olives and throw them in. Season with the other half of the taco packet and let it simmer. Continue stirring every couple of minutes.


  • 3-4 green plantains

  • 1 cup cooking oil

  • Salt

Peel and slice the plantains. Heat some oil so it's very hot! Fry the plantains for a minute or so until they're lightly golden. Smash them with the bottom of a cup or a plantain smasher. Fry them once more time for another minute or so to get crispy! Season with salt.

*I wish I owned an air fryer because these would probably be SO good in the air fryer. But I don't! So I just did it the old-fashioned way. You could also probably bake the plantains to avoid having to fry them. I'll have to try that!*

I topped mine with some pepper jack cheese, red onion, tomato, and fresh cilantro & chives from my garden!

Let me know if you try this recipe! :)
