Sometimes you just want a delicious sandwich. I came up with this mango twist on my usual Cuban thanks to a tip in Restaurant Business Magazine. The mango adds a sweet and juicy flavor and texture to the meaty Cuban. I order them in certain sections of Miami and Tampa. They are easy to make at home. Especially good for a crowd at pool and football parties. Simply use a larger skillet or grill.
We serve Cuban’s with coleslaw, lemonade or beer.
