"This is a delicious green plantain hash recipe my sister brought back from Costa Rica. It's best served as a vegetable or on a hot tortilla as a boca."

This hit the spot!! I decided to double the recipe (all expcept the plantains) so I can use all the ground beef. It didn't seem like it was enough beef but then the title did say "Platano". Next...

Delicious!! I was so happy to see this here! I grew up with this dish but never learned how to make it. I followed it to the tee, just replaced worshtire sauce with SALSA LIZANO from Costa Rica....

We only had 2 plantains, and I used 1 lb. of ground beef. It was very tasty. I'd make it again.
