Plataninas are green plantains chips. Plantains are like bananas, but much bigger and with a unique flavor. Guatemalans eat plantains or platanos as we call them here in many forms, such as plataninas, rellenitos (deep-fried stuffed platains balls), fritos (fried), atol de platano, chairbroiled and baked; just to name a few.
