  • Preheat oven to 300 (if your oven runs hot, you might need to lower just slightly)
  • Combine all ingredients in blender until they are pureed. If using green plantains you will need a more heavy-duty blender or processor for this.)
  • On a parchment lined baking sheet space out sizable scoops of the puree (you can use an ice cream scoop)
  • Using the back of a spoon (or an oiled hand) spread out each scoop into a flat circle; mine were each out the size of my hand spread out (flat)
  • Bake for about 25 minutes or until the “tortilla” becomes solid yet flexible
  • Remove baking sheet from oven and wait a minute for “tortillas” to slightly cool
  • Next “hang” each tortilla by folding it over the baking rack directly (see photo below)
  • Bake like this for another 20-30 minutes or until golden brown and crispy. The center might be slightly more chewy depending on thickness and cooking time.
  • Remove from oven and prop them open while they cool slightly. If they cool closed, they are harder to fill with taco fixins. Alternatively, you can also use this taco oven rack!
