These melts have great consistency when only half of the sour cream and mayo are used.

I tried this receipe and substituted canned chicken for Tuna and used cheddar cheese instead of swiss because I didn't have those ingredients and it was delicious. My family loved it and suggested that I make it up in advance and store it in the fridge for a quick lunch option.
