Ripe Plantain Quesadillas

6 Servings
Total Time 45 minutes


  • 12 slices BIG BANANA Ripe Plantain Slices
  • cup vegetable oil to cook the skinny way, substitute 2 tablespoons of oil
  • 8 small flour tortillas
  • 6- oz grated Mexican 4-cheese
  • Butter for cooking quesadillas


  • Cut Ripe plantain slices into ¼″ dices and set aside.
  • Pre-Heat oil to 350°F.
  • Carefully add the plantain and cook for about 3 minutes, until golden brown, flipping half way through.
  • Set cooked plantains aside.
  • Line up 4 tortillas in an assembly line. Add about ⅛ of the cheese to each of the 4 tortillas and top with the equivalent of 3 slices of plantain.
  • Cover the plantains with remaining cheese, dividing equally among the 4 quesadillas and top with remaining tortillas.
  • Heat butter in a pan set over medium-high heat.
  • The amount will vary on the size of your pan; you shouldn’t need more than 1 tablespoon per quesadilla.
  • Place a quesadilla in the pan, turning once, until tortilla browns slightly, 3 to 4 minutes per side.
  • Repeat until all quesadillas are cooked.
  • Once cooked quesadillas have cooled for 2 minutes or so, use a sharp knife to cut it into quarters for serving.
