Tostones (from the Spanish verb tostar which means "to toast") or patacones are a side dish that is popular in many Latin American countries. The dish is made from sliced green (unripe) plantains which are cut either lengthwise or widthwise and fried until they are crisp and golden brown. Tostones are salted and eaten much like potato chips/crisps or French fries/chips. In some regions it is customary to dip them in mojo (a garlic sauce). In some countries, they are served topped with cheese as an appetizer. They can also be bought pre-made from supermarkets. This food is found in all varieties of Caribbean cuisine. Tostones are also a staple of Latin American countries and the Caribbean, including Cuba, Puerto Rico, Dominican Republic, Nicaragua, the north coast of Honduras, and Haiti. -Excerpt from Wikipedia
