How to cook frozen tostones & plantains in the air fryer?

All you need to do is get a bag of your favorite frozen plantains, such as Goya. Then, without defrosting the tostones or plantains, place them in the air fryer.

To ensure even frying, flip them over while they are cooking. Obtain a plantain with a golden exterior and a lovely soft inside. Also, you’ll obtain tostones that are very crispy and no longer soggy.

Storing & Reheating

Refrigerate leftover tostones & plantains in an airtight container for up to 3-4 days. If you want to reheat your leftovers, remove them from the refrigerator and place them in the air fryer basket at the temperature of 350ºF (176ºC). Air fry for 2 minutes, or until warm.
