Honduran Platanos Fritos is a very common side dish of fried plantain or banana as it is the main export of this country. It is always served as part of the plato tipico or Typical plate, the national dish of Honduras. Typically it is made with a very ripe black plantain, cut into fourths and fried. The caramelized plantain is delicious with the refried beans and sour cream. Honduran Platanos Fritos are sweet and savory at the same time. Super easy to make and it would also be a lovely snack.
