In South America and Mexico, plantain chips are considered the equivalent to potato chips in the United States. These crunchy and salty fried plantain chips are a delicious alternative to potato chips. One taste and you will understand why they are so popular around the world.
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.”

“The shipment ordered yesterday has arrived! I tried the plantain chips and had a hard time to stop eating them. They are so good! I cannot wait to try the dried mango with less sugar.
It is too bad that I forgot to add the free custom trail mix with my order.

“Wow! This company and their product has exceeded my expectations! Ordered on Monday, delivered by Tuesday, and absolutely top quality at a great price. Who could ask for anything more?”
Andrea, Washington, DC April 26, 2013
“Wow! The delivery was fast and funny (nice box)! This was a bit of an Internet shopping faux pas...I thought I'd ordered 16 bags of plantain chips; instead, I ordered ONE 16-pound bag of chips! It was pretty funny, but since the chips are so good, it wasn't a problem. We have given away many bags this past week and everyone loves them. Thanks!”
