Cuban Sandwich Quesadilla

The flavors you love about a Cuban sandwich… made skinnier! Perfect for lunch.

There was no way I was making Pernil without making Cuban sandwiches. For those of you who never heard of a Cuban sandwich, you might think this is a strange combo. A classic Cuban sandwich is made with roast pork (pernil), ham, Swiss, pickles, and mustard, butter and garlic on Cuban bread, heated and melted on a panini press. It’s probably a day’s worth of points. My reduced fat version has all the flavors of a Cuban without the added fat.

If you are not a pork eater, you might enjoy my Turkey Cuban sandwich.

  • 6 inch low carb whole wheat tortilla (La Tortilla Factory)

    Heat a non-stick pan over low heat. Spray with cooking spray and place tortilla on pan. On half of the tortilla, place a piece of cheese, pork, ham, pickle and mustard. When cheese is melted, fold the quesadilla in half and flip to heat other side. Remove from heat and cut into 3 pieces.
