Aborrajado is a dish of deep fried plantains stuffed with cheese in Colombian cuisine. In general, an aborrajado means that the cheese-filled plantain is dipped in batter and deep-fried (giving it its name, which means "battered"), although baked or grilled plantains stuffed with cheese and without the batter deep-fry are also common. Guava paste, known as bocadillo in Colombia, is also sometimes included as part of the filling.[1]
