With four small children at home, I need quick yet filling meals. These fast family-favorite sandwiches and are a cinch to make. For a spicier taste, eliminate the ketchup and increase the amount of salsa to 1 cup. —Leticia Lewis, Kennewick, Washington

MY REVIEW
Reviewed May. 3, 2014

"Very happy that I doubled the recipe - it is delicious! Only change I made was that I didn't add the apple cider vinegar since I didn't have any on hand & I added about a tablespoon of honey dijon mustard. I will make it the same way next time."
