1. Season skirt steak with adobo, onion powder, garlic powder and black pepper.
2. Grill steak over high heat until you reach desired cook. Remove from heat and let it rest for 5-10 minutes.
1. Preheat air fryer to 390 degrees.
2. Cut the ends off the plantain. Slice the skin from end to end. Peel the skin off and cut the plantain into 2-inch rounds.
3. Place the plantain pieces in your air fryer basket and spray them with olive oil spray. Air fry for 5 minutes.
4. Prepare a bowl of salted water.
5. Remove the plantain pieces from the air fryer. Smash plantains to about 1/2-inch thickness using a tostonera (plantain smasher) or the bottom of a glass.
6. Soak the smashed tostones in the bowl of salted water for a couple of minutes.
7. Remove the tostones from the salted water and pat dry with a paper towel.
8. Return tostones to the air fryer in batches, cooking in a single layer each time. Spray the tops with olive oil spray and air fry for 5 minutes.
9. Flip with tongs and spray the other side with olive oil spray. Air fry until golden brown and crisp, 4 to 5 minutes more.
10. Remove tostones from air fryer and season with salt.
1. Place some steak on a piece of fried plantain, top with cheese, lettuce, tomato, onions and mayo-ketchup. Top with another piece of fried plantain. Enjoy!
