Grilled Roast Beef Sandwiches

"I first tasted a memorable combination of roast beef and green chilies at a local cafe," writes Karen Ledbetter from Fort Collins, Colorado. "In this recipe, the chilies give the quick grilled sandwich a little bite. It's simple and delicious."

    Great combo of flavors. Great way to use up leftover pot roast.

    These were good! I added extra roast beef - two slices for each sandwich didn't seem like enough - and I added another slice of Swiss before adding the second slice of bread to help the sandwich stick together a little better. Served it with tomato soup for a quick dinner...

    Great sandwich! I use provolone cheese. This one is saved in my recipe box and I use it often.

    These sandwiches are out of this world. They are worth trying and a trip to the store for the items you might not have on hand. YUMMY!
