This was created for Ready, Set, Cook 2006. The sweet potato bake is jazzed up by the topping of the shredded plantain. The fried shredded plantain is known as aranitas. In spanish this means, "little spiders." The little plantain threads are sticking out in all directions, thereby creating the "spidery" look.
