Enjoy Plantain Chips
Plantains are a member of the banana family, as you may have guessed from their appearance. They tend to be more starchy and less sweet than bananas, and are generally cooked before serving. Plantains are typically prepared as a vegetable, unlike the banana which is treated like a fruit. Throughout Latin America, plantain chips are popular as a tasty treat. Prepared from thinly sliced green plantains, the chips have an irresistible crunch and are great for dipping. Enjoy them with pico de gallo, guacamole, hot sauce, ceviche, or any other toppings. Plantain chips are also delicious straight out of the bag! They are also referred to as platanitos, mariquitas, chicharritas, and tajadas.

“I have been regularly ordering from Nuts.com, ever since I found out about your online store. This time I order your plantain chips, as I enjoyed them when we lived in Panama in the early 60's. And I would fix them myself in recent years. Can't wait to try them out!”

“This was our first order from nuts.com. The quality of the plantain chips was very high. They taste fresh and just the right amount of salt! The cheese sticks were perfect, too! We can't find those in our town. Thanks for the sample of chocolate covered almonds, which are one of my favorites. It was a nice touch. We will definitely order again.”

“At first I was scared of ordering plantain chips online. I ordered a 4 lbs bag at first and was amazed with the quality and taste of the chips. After that day I purchase 40 lbs every week for my business.”
