I’m sorry…but WHY would you not wanna try my gorgeous Mexican Chica Tere’s Panini? I met Tere in Tulum Mexico and we became instant best buds because she offered me a spicy lollipop. She is beautiful inside and out, but what I love about her most is that she gave me this recipie for her FAMOUS PANINI! I promise this panini tastes as gorgeous as she looks….seee below!!

Here it goes,
Prosciutto di Parma
Sliced fresh mozzarella di bufala campana
Fresh basil, chopped
Red, shiny delicious tomatoes from the vine ;)
Modena balsamic vinegar
salt and pepper
* pesto spread ( optional)
cut a 6 in. piece of French baguette and cut it open in half. ( you can take out excess dough from bread, optional)
toast for aprox 2:30min.
meanwhile, cut the tomatoe and mozzarella into round slices.
when baguette is ready and still warm drizzle olive oil on both sides of bread, or use the pesto spread on the bottom half.
place 4-5 slices of prosciutto di Parma nicely on bottom half.
follow with the slices of mozzarella and top with slices of tomato.
sprinkle the chopped basil on top of tomato slices and finish up with salt, pepper and drizzle a little olive oil and little vinegar.
this panini tastes great with a pair of yellow spicy peppers and a lovely glass of chianti red wine… mmm
