Let's Make It
Heat oven to 350°F.
Cook and stir bacon and onions in medium saucepan on medium-high heat until bacon is crisp. Add ground beef and peppers; cook and stir until ground beef is evenly browned. Stir in next 6 ingredients; cover. Cook on low heat 15 min., stirring occasionally.
Cook plantains in dressing in skillet on medium-high heat until each slice is evenly browned on both sides, turning once. Arrange 1/3 of the plantains on bottom of 13x9-inch pan sprayed with cooking spray; cover with half the meat mixture. Repeat layers; cover with remaining plantains. Whisk eggs and milk until blended; pour over ingredients in pan.
Bake 45 min. or until center is set.
Serve with a mixed green salad and your favorite fresh fruit to round out the meal.
Alcaparrado is available in jars in most Latino grocery stores. If you can't find it, you can easily make your own. Just combine 1 tsp. drained capers with 6 sliced large pitted green olives. Keep refrigerated until ready to serve.
Ripe plantains can be kept in the refrigerator for several days. The peels will turn brown but the flesh will remain unchanged.
