    I never thought about frying plantains as an appetizer. I am going to try this for my next party.

    What did he mean when he said,"You've got a great couple spreads"? Was he perhaps talking about the dips?

    Plantains are in the banana family. They are bigger firmer and more versatile. They cook and fry up much better than regular bananas and they don't have as much sugar. Banana's have simple carbohydrates that break down into sugar plantains do not. So, if you're watching sugar intake plantains are a better choice. Buen provecho!
