Southwestern Grilled Cheese Sandwich

photoThis is a great grilled cheese recipe. I paired it with a southwestern roasted tomato soup. It is from page 84 of the March 2013 issue of Woman’s Day magazine. The recipe makes 4 servings.



Southwestern Grilled Cheese Sandwich

2 tablespoons fresh lime juice
1 teaspoon honey
3 tablespoons olive oil
Kosher salt and Pepper
1 small   red onion, thinly sliced
1/2 cup chopped fresh cilantro
1 tablespoon adobo sauce, from canned chipotles in adobo
2 teaspoons brown sugar
8 slice (thick)  country bread
8 ounce extra-sharp white Cheddar, coarsely grated

In a medium bowl, whisk together lime juice, honey, 1 tablespoon oil, and 1/4 teaspoon each salt and pepper. Add onion and cilantro and let sit, tossing occasionally, until ready to use.

In a small bowl, whisk together adobo sauce and brown sugar.

Brush one side of each slice of bread with remaining 2 tablespoon oil. Form sandwiches with bread (oiled side out), adobo mixture, cheese, and onion-cilantro mixture.

Working in batches, cook sandwiches in a nonstick skillet, covered, over medium-low heat, until bread is golden brown and crisp and cheese has melted, 3 to 4 minutes per side. Transfer to a baking sheet and cover with foil to keep warm. Repeat with remaining sandwiches.
