4 cups vegtable oil
4 ripe plantains, peeled and cut on the bias into 1/2-inch thick slices
Heat oil to 365 degrees F in a heavy medium saucepan. Carefully add the plantains, in batches as necessary, and fry until golden brown, about 3 to 4 minutes. Remove with a slotted spoon to a paper towel-lined plate to drain. Immediately sprinkle with salt and cilantro, if desired

Amarillos is another name for ripe plantains. Select plantains that are very yellow, almost orange in color with black spots - these are very ripe.
