Tostones con queso was my favorite food when I stayed in Ometepe island in Nicaragua last February. Slightly melted salty queso fresco on top of a piping hot golden disc of plantains was the perfect partner to ice cold Tona beer. Since we’ve been back to the state, we make this dish often because it’s easy to make. Fried plantain is a great vessel to any kind of toppings. The possibility is endless!
Here’s a watercolor, wordless comic illustrating how to make tostones con queso. It’s been a long time I drew comics with traditional medium and I realize how much more fun it is to draw on actual paper with actual paints. I should do this more often.
