In Provo there is a restaurant called El Salvador where I order fried plantains with an accompanying bean and cream dip. It was delicious, and it immediately became one of the best dishes I have ever had. It has been a little while since I’ve been back, so I don’t have a perfect memory of how it tasted. I am not an expert on the best way to cook plantains, make refried black beans, or make a delicious cream. However, when I made some basic versions and tried them out they were still very delicious. It might seem like a weird combination to some people, but it works, and it’s delicious.
Just a side note from Katie: We went to this restaurant, El Salvador, on our first date almost exactly four years ago! At the time, I wasn’t even sure if we were on a date. I thought it was fitting to share this meal on Valentine’s Day, since it’s inspired by the restaurant we first started our relationship at 🙂
