You need 3-4 green plantains, salt, finely chopped onions, butter, cheese (queso fresco), and oil for frying.
1. Peel the plantains and cut into 3/4 inch pieces.
2. Cook the plantains until they're soft.
3. Mash them with a rollling pin and use your hands to knead in a little salt, butter, cheese, and the onions.
4. Form a ball (slightly larger than an egg) and fry until golden brown. These are eaten for breakfast with coffee.
