Recipe Tips

Where to Find?Look for fresh salsa in the refrigerated section of the produce department of your supermarket. Frozen plantains, or maduros, can be found in the frozen section of larger supermarkets.

Serving SuggestionThese flavorful topped crackers are equally delicious served warm. Prepare recipe as directed, cooling the grilled steak and cooked plantains just slightly before slicing and using as directed.

How to Make Fresh SalsaCombine 2-1/2 Tbsp. finely chopped seeded tomatoes, 1 Tbsp. chopped white onions, 1-1/2 tsp. chopped jalapeño peppers, 1 tsp. fresh lime juice and a dash of salt.
