Remove when plantains can be poked through with a fork
In a large bowl, mash plantains, leaving a few large chunks
Heat 2 Tablespoons of Coconut Oil in a pan and add mashed plantain along with 1oz. of crushed pork rinds. Let sit for about 1 minute for bottom layer to crisp up then toss.
Remove from pan after another minute.
Let cool slightly before forming â€œbowlsâ€ to fill with a saucy protein, as the mofongo tends to dry up.
