Kitchen Tips
Tip 1
How to Use the Remaining Avocado Half
Since this recipe uses only half of an avocado, you can chop the remaining avocado half and use it to garnish the filled plantain cups just before serving. If desired, you can also top each filled cup with a sprig of additional fresh cilantro for more color.
