10 Ripe(Yellow) Plantain Recipes I Love

by Erica Dinho on April 23, 2013


I am a big fan of plantains in any form and I have a serious weakness for ripe plantains (plátanos maduros). Plantains are popular in Colombia and Latin American cuisine, and we have many recipes to make with this delicious ingredient. Today, I want to share 10 of my favorite Ripe Plantain Recipes from My Colombian Recipes.

Buen provecho!

Is there a recipe for the dish pictured at the top of the page? Looks like baked plantain stuffed with mozzarella and guava paste. (I think I just answered my own question…)

I recently spent time in South America and was introduced to the plantain – I’m hooked! I fond your site (clean look and such helpful recipes!) I want to try some of these recipes, but first, how do I know that a plantain has reached “ripeness.” Thanks for sharing your expertise!

I have the same question. Did you get an answer? I bought on1/2 price today hoping to use them in “banana bread” recipes. Can I do that?
