Patacon Pisao

Country: Venezuela, Colombia

Story: Patacon Pisao is a patacon that has been crushed and fried until crispy on the outside and soft on the inside. The dish can have a variety of toppings but some of the most popular ones would be lettuce, sour cream, tomato, avocado and shredded pork. For our version instead of the pork we use shredded chicken. Although the dish originates in Venezuela and Colombia many countries now have a version of this.

Preparation:A patacon is made using an entire green plantain. Black beans are spread on to provide a base layer. This is topped with pico de gallo, melted shredded cheese, chicken arreglado, sour cream and chopped lettuce mix.
