Lite Plantain & Chorizo Stuffing

Gluten free can be really boring! Spice it up with this insane plantain stuffing! Make it with my  Pavochon Turkey to impress any audience.  In Puerto Rico this is the traditional stuffing that is made with a Pavochon but it is usually double fried and very high in fat.  Here is my lightened up version and my taste buds could not tell the difference between this and and the original.  Instead of frying the plantains I steamed them.

You could probably boil them and get similar results. The Plantains suck up a lot of the stock, and you want the stuffing to be moist. If it seems dry just add more stock. This stuffing is really easy to make and not a lot of ingredients.  The best part is that it makes 5 full cups of stuffing and a 1/2 cup serving is only 4 Points!
