Ripe Plantains Stuffed with Chorizo and Cheese

I’m not sure I would consider this Ripe Plantains Stuffed with Chorizo and Cheese a full meal, but at the very least, this is one of my absolute favorite snacks. I’ll eat almost anything made with ripe plantain!

Ripe Plantains Stuffed with Chorizo and Cheese

I love the classic and traditional Colombian side of Plantain Stuffed with Cheese, and I am always trying new variations of it by stuffing the plantains with different ingredients. This recipe uses the same base ingredients, plantains and cheese, with the addition of flavorful chorizo, which makes for a really delicious plantain dish!

Add a nice green salad and this meal is the perfect way to enjoy a relaxing lunch. I love the slight spiciness the chorizo adds to the ripe plantains, while the warm melted cheese on top brings together amazing textures and fantastic flavors. I served them with a creamy avocado yogurt sauce. Absolutely awesome!

Buen provecho!

    I could definitely make a full meal of this- This is very similar to a common dish eaten Puerto Rico ( the name escapes me) but it is based on stuffed plantains and it was delicious.

    Do you have a recipe for that Avacado sauce? I’m always looking for new Avacado sauces and that one sounds wonderful with this dish.

    This looks like a wonderful idea and I’m excited to try, however, I am not a fan of chorizo. Is there another filling you have tried that you can reccommend?

    (+) my chorizo filling was also cooked with onions, garlic and paprika.
