Wheatless: Plantain Empanaditas

Empanaditas de Verde
One of the Ecuadorian frozen convenience foods sent from Florida were these little bites.  Two words: Tater Tots.  They taste just like Tots, but are slightly starchier in texture as they cool.

See the texture?  Just like a Tot.  Same crispy outside, too - but if there's cheese in there, it's not the volcano lava or stretchy type.

The idea was to split these with Dan, but he was late coming in from chores and got only one!
