Here’s the funny thing – Plantains are from the banana family – and I HATE bananas – but I like plantain chips likes this. Plantains are starchier and lower in sugar than bananas and also not as mushy. (it’s a texture thing – love banana flavor but you cannot pay me to eat a banana!!!).
How do you make air fryer plantain chips?
How do you make a quick guacamole?
My air fryer is used almost daily and I’ve got lots of great vegetable side dishes that you can make in it. My favorite are these Jalapeno Cheddar Avocado Fries – spicy and delicious! Air fryer zucchini fries are great too – so crispy! I even made stuffed mushrooms in the air fryer – juicy and cheesy yum!
