March is almost here and with March comes March Madness Basketball.  I always make a bracket, but only really pay attention during the tournament.  Sometimes I do well, but it is really all luck for me.  This year Boar’s Head is holding their own tournament, a tournament of sandwiches.  Now that is my kind of tournament.

I am lucky enough to have a sandwich included in the Boar’s Head® Boldest Bracket Challenge.  My Chipotle Chicken Bacon Ranch Panini is included in the tournament.  This sandwich uses Boar’s Head Chipotle Chicken Breast and Boar’s Head Chipotle Gouda Cheese.  The meat and cheese have a great bold taste and bring a lot of flavor to the sandwich.
I decided to use the meats to bring spice to a Chicken Bacon Ranch sandwich.  Chicken, bacon, and ranch are some of my favorite flavors and I thought they would taste great with some chipotle flavor.  Plus these flavors are all brought together in a nice hot panini where all the flavors can meld together in melted Chipotle Gouda goodness.  This sandwich was fantastic and my husband said it was one of his favorites.  I hope you enjoy this delicious sandwich.
