Food Porn of The Week: Arañitas

Arañitas when translated into English means little spiders.  These crunchy and delicious plantain fritters get their name from the shredded plantain that resembles tiny spider legs when fried.  Sounds kinda gross, right?  Well, they are DELICIOUS!  Total Puerto Rican comfort food.  I served mine with some Mayo Ketchup.  This was known as "Fancy Sauce" in the Movie Stepbrothers.  It's really just equal parts mayonnaise and ketchup.  I don't use a recipe because this is beyond easy to make, but here is a good one to follow.
