Passover Nachos with Homemade Plantain Chips

Written by chanie on March 30th, 2015

Ever since I jumped on the Paleo train, plantains have become a regular part of my diet. I frequently buy Trader Joes roasted plantain chips to eat with guacamole or even tuna salad. I eat them on taco night while my kids enjoy crunchy corn tacos, and I top ’em with nut butter for a delicious treat.


It took me a while to start making my own plantain chips, but once I did, I never turned back. Once you get past the peeling part (which is really ridiculously easy), there’s not much to it.

I prefer to use a mandoline for slicing my plantains because it ensures that all my chips are equal in size so that they cook evenly. Sadly, I don’t have a dairy one (yet!), so I just used a sharp knife. If you’re careful about keeping your chips even, they’ll all bake up nice and crisp at the time same time, and if they don’t, you can just remove the ones that are ready and let the thicker ones finish in the oven.

It’s really that easy! You can bake them savory or sweet – but chili powder and kosher salt are my fave. Of course some gooey melted cheddar doesn’t hurt either.

Can you believe these crunchy cheese smothered chips are kosher for Passover?! Forget the greasy potato chips, and the boring old Passover brownies, THIS is a snack that will make you forget you’ve gone gluten free for 8 days. Yes, it’s as good as it looks, and you know you want it. Now.

Forget Passover, these nachos are great for year-round guilt-free nacho-eating. When you’re eating low-fat oven-baked chips that are made out of a fruit and topped with vegetables, can you even call them nachos? You’re basically just doing your best to get your fill of fruits and veggies, right? RIGHT?

Welcome to my world of deguiltifying comfort food. It’s what I do best.

Now that I’ve got you covered with homemade nutella, nutella banana ice cream, pure-bliss Passover nachos and endless other out-of-the-box kosher for Passover recipes, you can say goodbye to the chicken and potatoes you’ve been making for ages and try some fun dishes instead. Although, if you like the “same old” , I’ve got you covered with that too.

    Looks really great! I’m going to have to try those Trader Joe’s ones after Pesach.
    I’m wondering why you would need a dairy mandoline? It doesn’t mention anything in the recipe. Am I missing something, or can I just use my pareve one?
    Thanks

    HI I want to know what you can use a mandoline for and which one do you recommend that is not too pricey?

    • chanie says:

      A mandoline can be used to cut fruits or vegetables into a uniform thickness (in varying thicknesses). Depending on the make and model, many include features to slice things into a waffle cut, crinkle cut, french fries sticks and others. I use this one: http://amzn.to/1TVbfpz because I like that it folds and it’s simple for my needs.

  5. mmm i love nachos, this recipe is great. Thanks for sharing.
