Reviews for Green Chili Grilled Cheese Melt
"My husband and I liked this recipe, but found that it was too gooey and needed more crunch with it. We omitted the tomatoes, but otherwise thought it was a creative grilled cheese recipe!"
"I'm a big fan of grilled cheese because it is such a versatile dish. This is a nice spicy twist on the usual sandwich! Works well with sourdough bread instead of white."
"Excellent on every level. The garden fresh tomatoes knocked it out of the park. I made 1/2 recipe because there are just the two of us. Wish I had made the entire amount. Pretty sure the cheese mixture would be terrific on crackers. The ingredient mix is perfect. I appreciate a recipe that brings unique tastes to an old time favorite. Thanks so much."
"Gooey, yummy goodness. Will enjoy with soup in colder weather."
"This looked so good that I thought I would reduce the amount down to make just enough for two sandwiches, but then decided I'd make the full amount.. and I ended up using the balance at a party as a warm cheese dip, with just a bit of hot sauce added. Sandwich was divine, and the dip was delightful."
