Where do I begin!? I have been MIA since February! How insane!? I will be doing a sweet cup of Ambar sometime this week promise! I have SO much to tell you guys and it would be too much to talk about on this post. This RECIPE though!? In Dominican Republic there is a burger called Chimichurri Burger AKA Chimi. It’s our street food! There are many restaurants and food trucks that sell it here in the US. Oh! And they are usually found outside of clubs. Why you may ask? So that all of the people who are probably intoxicated can devour one of these amazing burgers! I decided to mix things up. Fuck the bun, let’s make it even more Dominican by replacing the buns with Fried Plantains! They are easy to make and taste delicious! A little fatting but no one has to know!
FYI I’m trying to make instructions for recipes easier. I numbered each step instead of making it into a big paragraph. Hope this helps make cooking easier for you guys. Enjoy!!!
