This recipe is part of a Cuban-Style Christmas: Mojito, Garlic Plantain Chips, Lime, Garlic, and Oregano Mojo, Avocado Salad, Gloria's Black Bean Soup, Crab Empanadas with Pickled Garlic-Caper Remoulade and Roasted Pork Marinade.
1. Heat the oil to 350 degrees in a deep fryer or heavy-bottomed saucepan. Immediately add the plantain chips one at a time, but do not overload the pan or the oil will not stay enough. (Cook in batches if necessary.) Deep-fry until golden, 3 or 4 minutes.
2. Remove the chips with wire-mesh strainer and drain on paper towels. Sprinkle with the salt and garlic powder and let cool.
