Latina Cook-Off : Pistachio & Bacon Challenge

To get something done, you just have to do it.

Behind schedule in The Project, kids back to school, deciding to become a homeroom mom, two soccer kids, piano and jazz. And my still new job. And the house. And before all that, the hubby.

And so, with pure enlightenment from above, I present the appetizer that can be made in less than 10 minutes and will keep people talking for months.

Latina Cook-Off Recipe: Guayaba y Queso Bacon Pistachio Pastica

I'll always thank Maray for introducing me to the original version of the recipe - cream cheese, guava marmalade (or preserves) and crumbled bacon. For the cook-off, I added sea salt and black pepper flavored pistachios for that extra savory kick.

Spread the guava over the cream cheese.

Top the guava with crumbled bacon.

End with the pistachios, roughly chopped and sprinkled over the top.

Serve with Cuban Crackers.
