    that “hideous being” is a maduro which is a ripe plantain. Tostones are
    made with green plantain two different things but it was a good attempt
    being that your not spanish

  2. Randy Warren says:

    Hi. My Nana’s from Cuba, and she used to mash them between two small brown
    paper lunch bags. Remember those things in school? Then once done, she’d
    sprinkle them with an even amount of salt and sugar. Gave it a sweet and
    sour kind of taste. Lord I miss her cooking. She’s 98 years old, and still
    going strong, but we’re severlal states away from each other, so I don’t
    get to have her dishes too often…

  3. DTHUGisdashit says:

    oh dear. you would never make tostones with platanos that are that
    yellow… the platanos she has you would fry up just in chunks and serve
    them with food. and thats not how u say tostonera lmao

  4. Melatina77 says:

    Mixing Puerto Rican and Mexican food. I don’t think that’s a good idea. LOL
    Where can I get one of those wooden things to flatten the tostones?

  5. Anna M says:

    A to nie mozna zjesc poprostu surowego banana?!

  6. berrios227 says:

    Texas girl making tostones! I have seen it all! Next time show them the
    sweet plantain recipe. We Puerto Ricans call them amarillos (no, not the
    Texas beloved pet).

  7. Joseph G says:

    I love your video the plantains look so good great job!

  8. Idalmis Hurtado says:

    By the way, where can I get that tostonera? Will love to make those baskets
    for serving ceviche!!!!

  9. Idalmis Hurtado says:

    You did an awesome job cutting those plantains! In Panama we call them
    patacones and that’s how I love my patacones a little bit sweet 

  10. maria ruiz says:

    I’m so proud of you girl!! I have seeing videos of some Spanish girls that
    had no idea how to peel off a green plantain. And you did it perfectly just
    how we make it in Costa Rica. But we called patacones!! Loving this.

    • Melatina77 says:

      +maria ruiz She didn’t peel a green plantain! The yellow ones peel just
      like a regular banana.

  11. Angel Zapata says:

    You love latin dishes right? 😀

    This reminds me so much of Puerto Rico. We usually eat them with ketchup,
    mayoketchup, and al ajillo (butter, olive oil and garlic i think not sure.)
    theyre delicious. :))

  12. Nancy Rojas says:

    I grew up eating tostones! is a staple Cuban food, I love eating tostones!!

  13. jacqueline reyes says:

    Hilah, where can I find the device tha u used for this recipe?

    • Melatina77 says:

      +jacqueline reyes I would like to know too!

  14. Julia De Sousa says:

    I died when she said plantains are like punk rock bananas XD 

  15. Daisy Castrillon (Dmakeupobsession) says:

    What you called that plantain , is insulting , they are beutiful, and you.
    Are not funny.

  16. SKIMASK G R E Jamal says:

    She’s stupid the darker the healthier wow white folks really are pretenders
    of other cultures

  17. Cindy B. says:
