    2 - 3 large very ripe plantains
    2 tbs extra virgin olive oil
    2 oz queso fresco - Spanish cheese can be found in any Latino store. The fresher the better (very fresh will be very moist and soft, older will be drier and firmer)


Heat oil in frying pan. Slice plantains as you desire 1/4" thickness. Place in frying pan and cook until golden. About 2 minutes. Turn and cook until golden. Remove from heat and place on paper towel to get rid of excess oil. Crumble queso fresco over plantains and enjoy. Tastes best with very fresh queso fresco.
For even better flavor, sprinkle cayenne pepper over plantains after cooking and add cheese on top.
