Whole30 Buffalo Chicken Tostones




Yield 10 tostones

Crispy pan-fried plantains topped with shredded buffalo chicken and smashed avocado. Guilt free snacking at it's finest. 



  1. Prepare Buffalo Sauce: In a small sauce pot, combine the buffalo sauce, apple cider vinegar, and ghee.
  2. Pour the prepared buffalo sauce over the shredded chicken. Toss till well coated.
  3. To prepare the tostones: Preheat a skillet on medium- high. Add coconut oil. Once oil is hot, carefully place the sliced plantain in the oil. Let cook for 3 minutes or till it begins to turn golden. Flip them. Let the other side cook for an additional 3 minutes. Remove the plantains from the oil and smash with a flat cup or small dish. Once they have all been pressed flat, return to the oil. Cook for an additional 2 minutes per side. Remove to a paper towel lined plate. IMMEDIATELY sprinkle with salt.
  4. Prepare smashed avocado: Cut a ripe plantain in half. Discard pit. In a small bowl smash the avocado and season with salt, pepper, and a squeeze of lime juice.
  5. Place a little buffalo chicken on the prepared plantain and top with the smashed avocado.
  6. Enjoy!
