Prep time: 
Cook time: 
Total time: 
For the chips
  • 2 medium, very green plantains
  • 1 tablespoon of olive oil
  • 1 teaspoon of kosher salt
For the dip
  • ¾ cup of plain Greek yogurt
  • 4 tablespoons of lime juice (or to taste)
  • 1 teaspoon minced garlic, or to taste
  • ¾ teaspoon of salt
  • Black pepper, to taste
For the chips
  1. Preheat your oven to 400 degrees Fahrenheit.
  2. Prepare a large baking sheet by lining it with parchment paper or silicone mat.
  3. Cut the ends off the plantains and then make a slit through the skin down each plantain, lengthwise. Peel the plantain skins away.
  4. Slice the plantains thin, as discussed above, and place them in a medium bowl.
  5. Add the olive oil and salt to the plantains and toss to thoroughly combine.
  6. Place the plantains in a single layer on your prepared baking sheet.
  7. Bake the plantains until they're crispy and lightly browned, 10-15 minutes for very thin chips or 15-20 minutes for thicker chips.
  8. Remove the chips from the oven and allow them to cool before serving.
For the dip
  1. Combine the yogurt, garlic, lime juice, salt, and pepper in a small bowl and stir thoroughly to combine. For even better flavor, cover and refrigerate for at least an hour before serving.
