8oz. SOUR CREAM
1-2oz. LIME JUICE, to taste
SALT, to taste
Place all the ingredients in a blender, pulse until smooth.
GREEN PLANTAINS: (Important to use green and not yellow, the yellow will be much too sweet for this)
Slice the plantain in 1" slices. In a skillet with some oil, fry them until just golden. Remove and place on paper towel to drain. After they have drained, flatten each slice out with a spatula or the back of a wooden spoon until they are about 1/4" thick. Re-fry in the same skillet until they are a deeper golden color. Remove and drain on more paper towels. Sprinkle with a little salt.
