Baked Plantains with Lime

Now that we are back in Florida, plantains are everywhere, and they’re affordable! I saved this recipe a long time ago and finally tried it yesterday. This is definitely a keeper!


  • 2 plantains, yellow to black in color
  • 1.5 T lime juice (I used the juice of half a lime)
  • 1/2 tsp chili powder (I used a dash)
  • 2.5 T butter
  • Salt


  1. Heat oven to 375F and trim the plantain ends on both sides.
  2. Cut a lengthwise slit in each plantain and place on a baking pan. Bake for 40 minutes.
  3. Remove from oven and let cool. Peel the skin off the plantains and slice into 1/2-inch diagonal pieces.
  4. Place the pieces on the baking pan and sprinkle with lime juice, chili powder, and salt. Bake for another 10 minutes.
