These baked, seasoned crisps are so tasty and colorful, you might not miss those fried potato chips.

Because of their low moisture content, unripe plantains will crisp easily, so keep an eye on them. Once they begin to brown, they harden a lot, at which point you can toss them to your dog for a chew toy and start a new batch.

Makes 4 servings

2 medium unripe plantains (they should be hard and green), thinly sliced

2 tablespoons olive oil

1/2 teaspoon chili powder (or Mexican/taco seasoning)

1/4 teaspoon salt

The zest of 1 small lime

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. For easy cleanup, line a large rimmed baking sheet with parchment paper.

Place plantains in a large bowl and, using your hands, toss with oil and seasonings until coated.

Arrange in a single layer on the prepared baking sheet. Bake for 15 to 20 minutes or until golden and crisp. Remove from oven and eat. [Copyright 2012 National Public Radio]
