A Glimpse into the Heart of Mofongo

How to Make Mofongo at Home?: A Step-by-Step Guide

Mofongo might seem like a dish only for professional chefs, but with the right ingredients and a touch of love, anyone can make it at home.


  • Green plantains: 4, peeled and sliced
  • Garlic cloves: 4 minced
  • Pork rinds (chicharrones): 1 cup crushed
  • Olive oil: 4 tablespoons
  • Salt and pepper: to taste
  • Chicken broth: for moistening


  1. Deep-fry the sliced plantains in hot oil until they turn golden brown. Remove and drain excess oil on paper towels.
  2. In a mortar and pestle (pilón), mash the fried plantains.
  3. Add the minced garlic, crushed pork rinds, olive oil, salt, and pepper. Continue mashing until the mixture is well combined and has a dough-like consistency.
  4. If the mixture is too dry, moisten with chicken broth to get the desired consistency.
  5. Shape the mixture into balls or small domes.
  6. Serve with your choice of meat, sauce, or enjoy it as it is!
