10 plantains, peeled and broken into chunks
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup milk
1/4 cup butter

Directions:
Directions:
Preheat oven to 400 degrees F (200 degrees C). Spray a baking dish with cooking spray.
Place plantains and salt into a large pot and cover with water; bring to a boil. Reduce heat to medium-low and simmer until plantains turn a darker yellow; add 1 cup water to the pot, bring to a boil, and cook until tender, about 15 minutes. Drain.
Mash plantains, milk, and butter together in the pot until smooth.
Heat oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Cook and stir ground beef, onion, bell pepper, tomato sauce, garlic, and chicken bouillon, adding water if mixture gets too dry, in hot oil until beef is browned and cooked through, 10 to 12 minutes.
Spread 1/2 of the mashed plantains into the bottom of the prepared baking dish. Pour meat mixture over the plantains and top with Cheddar cheese. Spread remaining mashed plantains over the cheese.
Bake in the preheated oven until plantains are golden and filling is bubbling, about 10 minutes.

Personal Notes:
Whenever I see ripe plantains at the supermarket I crave this recipe. I usually tweak it according to taste or what I have in the fridge. I've substituted the beef filling with quinoa, mushrooms and bell peppers, for example.
