Combine sour cream, whipped topping, sugar and cinnamon in small bowl. Serve plantains with sweet cream sauce.
Serve this rich side dish as an accompaniment to lean meat, poultry or fish and vegetables.
Yellow plantains are often spotted with brownish-black flecks because the sugars have begun to develop. At this stage, the plantain is more tender, but still firm, is sweeter and has a creamier texture. Yellow plantains can be grilled as well as prepared in the same way as green plantains.
Bananas and plantains are not interchangeable. While they are close relatives, plantains are usually cooked before they are eaten.
