easy Chiquita Plantain and Black Bean Pies Recipe
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Combine the mashed black beans, salsa and half the cheese; set aside. Peel the plantains then use the tip of a teaspoon to remove the seeds in the middle. Mash plantains until smooth. Lightly spray 4 individual 3-oz. ramekins with cooking spray. Divide plantains among the ramekins and pat evenly onto the bottom and up the sides to make a "crust". Fill plantain crusts with black bean mixture and sprinkle with remaining cheese. Bake for 25-30 minutes and serve hot.
