Preparation

  2. Add salt, pepper, and chili powder, and mix to combine.
  3. Wrap one slice of cheese around a hot dog link and cut into fifths.
  4. Take one tablespoon of your plantain mixture and encase one slice of the cheese-wrapped hot dog, shaping into a cylindrical “tot.”
  5. Repeat until all slices are covered and shaped, and place on a parchment-lined baking sheet. Freeze one hour.
  6. In a large pot over medium-high heat, heat your oil to 375ºF (190ºC).
  7. Drop four to five tots into the oil and fry until golden brown, about one to two minutes.
  8. Place on a paper towel to drain excess oil.
  9. Serve warm with your favorite dipping sauce!
  10. Enjoy!
