The Cuban Stuffed Plantain Cups or Tostones Rellenos. This recipe is a tasty variation of the known Tostones (Chatinos) from the traditional Cuban cuisine and is very easy to do. Try it and then enjoy!


  • 6 green plantains
  • 3/4 cup filling (cheese and ham ground)
  • oil
  • salt (to taste)


Peel and chop plantains into 3. Toss them in a pan and add oil to coat. Put the pan over medium heat and when plantains are browned remove them.

Put plantains on paper to absorb the oil and then crush them by hand. Make a hole in the center (without damaging the plantain) and place stuffed with cheese and ham.

Returned the stuffed cups to the hot oil and fry them until they are golden. Remove them and sprinkle salt to taste.

They should be served hot.
