I thought the bleu cheese was overpowering, but my boyfriend seemed to like it enough to give it four stars. I would have gone with 3.

I used less mayo and added blue cheese dressing instead of blue cheese. I also added the Chipotle sauce to taste. Instead of the Ciabatta bread I used Fajita bread and made small roll ups for a light lunch along side a fruity tossed salad. Big hit. Will make again for sure

I try so many recipes, it's always disappointing when they don't turn out as good as it looks. This was definitely not case. These are absolutely delicious. My family loved them. They are great for lunch or dinner. I've made this several times and nobody ever tires of it.

My family is not a fan of spicy stuff so left off the chipotle and still delicious! Definitely making again!

Yum....made with an onion roll! Might want to smash up your blue cheese chunks so they aren't overpowering!

Yum! I cut the spread in half to make the sandwhich lighter. Still yummy!
