Red chiles, thyme and allspice give Caribbean jerk seasoning its sweet and spicy flavor. Look for the mixture, also called Jamaican jerk seasoning, in the spice section of the supermarket.
Try using 1 plantain in place of the bananas. A large firm variety of banana often called the cooking banana, plantains have a mild, less-sweet banana flavor that is a good match for hot and spicy foods. Cook the plantain 1 to 3 minutes longer than stated cooking times, or until tender.
Complete the meal with cooked white rice sprinkled with diced bell pepper.
