Stir in cilantro, Worcestershire, beans, rice. Cook to heat mixture through, stirring gently, taste and adjust salt if necessary. Transfer to serving platter. Surround with fried plantains and serve with tortillas. 2 In skillet over medium-high heat, fry the plantains for 3 to 4 minutes on each side, until they are golden; drain on paper towels. 3 In small saucepan boil brown sugar and water until sugar is dissolved and mixture is syrupy. 4 Pour off oil from skillet, return plantains to skillet and add syrup; cook the plantain mixture over medium heat, stirring, for 1 to 2 minutes, until plantains are coated well. Cover and set aside, keep warm or rewarm gently. Optional: If desired, top each serving with a fried egg and garnish with cilantro and grated Cotija cheese.
