Where do you find the seasoning packets? Is there a substitute? Can bananas be used instead of plantains?

Make It

HEAT oven to 350ºF.

CUT plantains lengthwise into 1/2-inch-thick slices. Heat 2 Tbsp. dressing in large nonstick skillet. Add half the plantains; cook 1-1/2 min. on each side or until golden brown on both sides. Remove from skillet; keep warm. Repeat with 2 Tbsp. of the remaining dressing and the remaining plantains.

ADD peppers, onions, olives, garlic, 1/4 cup cilantro and remaining dressing to skillet; cook and stir on medium heat 5 min. or until vegetables are crisp-tender. Stir in meat, tomato sauce and seasoning. Bring to boil, stirring occasionally; simmer on medium heat 10 min. or until meat is done, stirring occasionally.

BEAT whole eggs, egg whites and milk with whisk until well blended; set aside. Place half the cooked plantains in bottom of 13x9-inch baking dish sprayed with cooking spray; top with layers of half each of the meat mixture, beans and cheese; repeat all layers. Pour egg mixture over pinon; cover.

BAKE 30 min. or until center is set. Sprinkle with remaining cilantro.

Kraft Kitchens Tips

Special Extra
Add 1/4 cup raisins to meat mixture for extra flavor.
Food Facts
In Puerto Rico, fresh recao leaves are used to make the classic pinon. Fresh cilantro, available in U.S. stores, is a flavorful substitute.
