Heat oil in large skillet over medium-high heat until hot but not smoking. Meanwhile, cut plantains on an angle into 1/2-inch slices.
Carefully place half of plantain slices in skillet; cook 1 to 2 minutes on each side or until golden brown. Remove from skillet; drain on paper towels.
Repeat with remaining slices. Let stand 5 minutes before serving.
Ripen plantains more quickly by placing in a brown paper bag with an apple. Close bag loosely and place in a warm area. Plantains are very ripe and sweet when the peel is almost completely black.
