Entertain in flavorful style with our Plantain Cups with Cheesy Chicken & Mayo recipe. Made with shredded rotisserie chicken, these plantain cups aren't half as difficult to make as they may appear. We won't let anyone know, though. Promise.
Cook plantains in large pan of boiling water 16 min. or until tender; drain.
Heat oven to 450°F. Place plantains in medium bowl; mash until smooth. Spoon into 12 muffin pan cups sprayed with cooking spray, adding about 1/4 cup plantains to each cup. Use back of spoon to make indentation in center of plantains in each cup.
Bake 21 to 25 min. or until edges are golden brown.
Remove plantain cups from oven; cool slightly. Meanwhile, process avocado, cilantro, mayo, lime juice and garlic in food processor until smooth.
Cook chicken, tomatoes and cheese in nonstick skillet on medium heat 5 min. or until cheese is completely melted and chicken mixture is heated through, stirring frequently.
Spoon chicken mixture into plantain cups; top with avocado mixture.
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.
