Cut the ends of the plantains off. Then gently slice through the peel without cutting in the flesh of the plantain all the way down the length of the fruit trying to avoid cutting into the flesh.


Then remove the peel. If it is resistant, use your thumb or a spoon to pry the edge of the peel up in order to remove the peel. 


Use a mandolin set on 1/16 inch in order to thinly slice the plantain into very thin slices. 


Lay the plantain slices out in a single layer over the bottom of the air fryer basket. Avoid layering or overlapping slices of plantain. Sprinkle with salt and pepper if desired.


Preheat the air fryer to 325° F and cook for 6-8 minutes. Remove and shake up the chips in the basket halfway through the cooking time. 


The chips are ready when they are golden brown and crispy. If they need to cook longer, cook in small increments and check frequently.

serve & enjoy!
