List of ingredients:

I use the app instacart, which is meant for getting your groceries delivered to you, to check the prices of things I need before even stepping out of the house. The app is updated in real-time and shows you coupons and deals that are available. You might even find yourself shopping where you do not normally shop at. 

(Prices may vary)

ITEM: Quantity | PRICE – Where to find:

salt: a pinch | $1.19 – Kroger

plantain: 1 | $0.50 – Kroger

ground red pepper:  to liking | $1.05 – Aldi

Peel and slice plantain longwise, lightly oil and salt. Bake in the airfryer for 10 minutes at 370 degrees. 

Plate as you like and enjoy!


Eat as a snack or as a side to chicken wings, sandwiches. It even pairs well with red stew or guacamole!
