Preheat a pan over medium-high heat. Add the can of cola, sugar, chipotle pepper, bay leaf and minced garlic; lower the temperature when the sauce begins to boil.
Boil over medium-low heat until the cola sauce begins to thicken. Season the cola sauce with salt as desired.
While the sauce continues to boil, heat a pan with some olive oil. Cook the ham cubes equally on each side until the whole cube is golden-brown.
Pour the cola sauce over the ham cubes and simmer until the sauce thickens some more. Serve immediately.
