Simple Advent Sandwiches #3

December 5, 2011

This is the perfect dinner when one member of your household wants Mexican food and another wants grilled cheese. How about a combination? This is a delicious and simple meal and you can make the spread in advance!

Spiced-Up Grilled Cheese

For the spread, blend together the following:

1 6-oz can tomato paste

3 T. chopped canned chipotle chilies (If you opened a fresh can, put the rest of the can in a zip-lock bag and freeze it for later use.)

1 T. molasses

Spread on 12 slices of bread, sourdough preferred.

On top of half the bread, place the following (divided, of course):

18 oz. extra-sharp cheddar cheese, thinly sliced

4 plum tomatoes, cut into 1/4” slices

1 small red onion, thinly sliced

1 C. fresh cilantro leaves

Top with remaining bread, sauce side down. Spread butter on both sides of the sandwiches and grill on a griddle or non-stick pan until the cheese is melted, about 5 minutes per side.
