Set a large skillet over medium heat. Add oil. Heat to 350 degrees, using a hot-oil thermometer to monitor temperature. Working in, fry plantains, rotating , until golden, 6-7 minutes. Use a slotted spoon to transfer a paper towel-lined plate. Use a large mortar and pestle or a fork to smash plantains, cracklings and garlic until somewhat smooth.

Once turkey and stuffing are done cooking, transfer stuffing to a serving dish. Serve with: Pavochón Avocado & Papaya Salad
