Preparation

This panini is truly pupule (crazy!) I've combined roasted pasilla peppers, pineapple, spiced cream cheese chicken breast and pepper jack and pressed it between Kings Hawaiian Original Hawaiian Sweet Sliced Bread. A quick, easy weeknight meal that is bursting with an amazing combination of flavors!
Step 1
Heat panini press to high heat.
Step 2
For easy roasted poblano peppers, broil under high heat for 5 minutes per side, or until skin is blistered. Place in a zip top bag for 10 minutes. Remove, then stem, peel and seed easily. Slice into 4 equal portions.
Step 3
Quickly sear pineapple rings on both sides over high heat until lightly browned in a small pan. Remove from heat and set aside.
Step 4
Combine cream cheese, cilantro, diced chipotle until well combined. Spread onto 4 of the slices of bread.
Step 5
Top cream cheese mixture with 1/4 of the chicken breast strips. Sprinkle with chipotle seasoning. Top with roasted poblano pepper, then pineapple rings, followed by a slice of pepper jack cheese. Top with remaining slice of bread.
Step 6
Place sandwiches onto the hot panini press. Cook until golden brown and cheese are melted and oozing.
Step 7
Slice on the diagonal and serve immediately.
