CalRio Cuban Pie

The basis of most Cuban dishes would be a "sofrito". This particular recipe incorporates the "sofrito" and a little more to make this pie. My husband loves to have simple dinners that are interesting and fast. This recipe is what he calls our collaboration and thus it's called CalRio Cuban Pie. Don't forget I reign supreme for my steps, but this one is pretty easy. Buen aprovecho!

Notes from the Test Kitchen:
This lovely dish has a variety of flavors that blend extremely well. It's also very versatile; I would be happy to have it at a brunch, luncheon or for dinner! The Mojo Sour Cream was an especially big hit with the Kitchen Crew. It would be fantastic in a grilled chicken wrap. Mmmm...
