This is a traditional dish from the northern part of Colombia. Its name translates as “spiders.” They are crispy and delicious green plantain fritters formed by grating the green plantains and making patties. Although regularly served with a sour cream called Suerno Costeño and chicharrones (pig skin fritters), you can serve them on their own or with Greek yogurt and avocado ají or any other picadillo or salsa.
