  • Heat 1 tsp. oil in large nonstick skillet on medium heat. Add plantains, onions and garlic; cook 5 min. or until plantains are golden brown, stirring frequently. Cool slightly. Stir in cheese and half the cilantro.
  • Spoon about 1/4 cup plantain mixture onto center of each dough disk; moisten edge with water. Fold disks in half to enclose filling; press lightly on tops to remove air pockets. Seal edges with fork.
