Production Manager Bertha Robles developed this sandwich when the hospital reopened its Bistro in July 2011, according to Foodservice Director Gail Ermer. “Our renovated Bistro featured a new deli bar, which necessitated the introduction of an innovative gourmet sandwich rotation. The Smoky Chipotle Stacker features one of the most intriguing tastes of the West, chipotle chilies, which adds visual appeal and earthy spiciness to the sandwich. In addition, the sandwich features fresh spinach, our nutrient-rich green of choice, and melds warm and cool tastes for a delectable tasting experience.”
