Hot Cuban Dip2

The inspiration for this Hot Cuban Dip was the Cuban sandwich I had enjoyed the day before.  With every bite I took I was reminded of how much I loved the flavor combination.

La Fonda Cuban Sandwich

That sandwich was amazing and huge.  Took half of it home for inspiration.  When I suggested recreating those flavors in the form of Hot Cuban Dip, there were smiles all around.

Hot Cuban Dip Ingredients

Ingredients: shredded Swiss cheese, diced sweet ham & Spanish pork (available at your deli-counter), chopped dill pickles, cream cheese, mayonnaise, mustard and fresh cracked black pepper.  Mix it all up (I wore disposable gloves and went in with my hands – so much easier).  Bake at 350 for 30 minutes or until golden on top and bubbly.

For my low-carb eaters out there….this ones for you!!  Meaty.  Cheesy.  Delicious.  For my Healthy Choices buddies, everything in moderation.
