Cubana: Inspired by the popular Cuban sandwich. Typically includes a wide variety of ingredients: ham, white cheese, scrambled eggs, sausage.

salt and pepper

1 medium green bell pepper (chopped into small pieces)

cooking oil ( frying)

How To:

In a wok, saute onions, bell pepper, potatoes and meat

add some salt and pepper on both beaten eggs and suated meat

Then pour sauted ingredients with the beaten eggs
