Wikipedia: Mofongo
Mofongo (Spanish pronunciation: [mo藞fo艐伞o]) is a Puerto Rican dish with plantains as its main ingredient. Plantains are picked green, cut into pieces and typically fried but can be boiled or roasted, then mashed with salt, garlic, broth, and olive oil in a wooden pil贸n (mortar and pestle). The goal is to produce a tight ball of mashed plantains that will absorb the attending condiments and have either pork cracklings (chicharr贸n) or bits of bacon inside. It is traditionally served with fried meat and chicken broth soup.
