Mash the plantains using a fork or potato masher. The consistency should have some small chunks, if it’s too smooth it will stick together.
Prepare a refrito by heating the butter or oil over medium low heat, add the diced onion, crushed garlic, achiote or annatto, salt and pepper. Cook until the onions are soft and translucent, about 7-10 minutes.
Add the mashed plantains to the refrito and cook for 10-12 minutes, stirring occasionally. Taste and add additional salt/pepper if needed.
Serve immediately with a fried egg, slices of fresh cheese, avocado slices and aji criollo.
