Plátanos Fritos - Fried Plantains

For this dish you need really ripe plantains.  When I mean really ripe is when they look so black that you think you should be getting rid of them.  This is common sense for anyone born and raised in or around the Caribbean, but I guess it is not that clear if you did not grow up there!
