Sinfully Spiced Plantains with Chocolate Sauce
Being that I am of Spanish decent, I love eating plantains (those banana looking things). Ever since I was a kid, my mother would cook some up with some salami or eggs and I would scarf them down. Ahhhh, the memory makes my mouth water.
Anyway, I was at Wal-Mart the other day and came across a little recipe index card that they had laying around. It was for heart-healthy plantains. I decided to incorporate my own little touch, so here goes. Enjoy it, its extremely tasty and health conscience.
Step 1. Preheat your grill at medium heat.
Step 2. Sprinkle a little cinnamon sugar on each side of the plantains. Grill the plantains on a grill rack covered with nonstick cooking spray over medium heat for 3 to 5 minutes on each side. Be sure to cover grill with lid during grilling process.
Step 3. Pour on the chocolate sauce and enjoy.
