      When I worked in PR. this year I had tostones off of a lunch truck. The guys I worked with said that the ketchup and Mayo way is the only way to eat them. I add some hot sauce into it because I like some spice. I do like to add salt during the cooking.

      I agree, the way you indicate to make the tostones is correct and will give you DELICIOUS result - especially the seasoning or salting them before the second fry session - great call! I must say like others did that the ketchup/mayonnaise mixture is not mojo, I have known that as "pink sauce" and traditionally used it with shrimp cocktail or french fries. Traditional mojo is more like a juice-like consistency and has ingredients like garlic, bitter orange, oregano, salt, oil, etc. (Did not rate for this reason).
