Grilled cheese sandwich is a wonderful thing.

In my world, it definitely is so.

 

Grilled cheese sandwich means comfort.

Grilled cheese sandwich means a piece of home that you can take wherever you go.

Grilled cheese sandwich means simple perfection.

 

The grilled cheese sandwich I am going to show you might be slightly different from a typical one, but man, is it good. There’s a chili pepper for a nice punch, there’s cream cheese for more creaminess and flavor, and there are crumbled tortilla chips inside for some special extra crunch.

And yes, you are guessing right, it tastes so good…

1. First, wash, dry, cut in half lengthwise, and seed one chili pepper.

The picture shows two peppers because I was preparing two sandwiches. (And I also wanted to have both red and green pepper in my sandwich. I am this mischievous.)

 

2. Place the pepper on a hot pan and roast it for about 8 minutes, until it gets softer.

If brown spots appear on the pepper as it roasts, that’s okay. Just remove the  spots with a knife before assembling the sandwich.

    That is the sexiest photo of peppers I have ever seen (or will probably ever see). Grilled cheese is one of my favorite standby meals, when I can’t think of anything else to make. Now I have the perfect way to doctor it up!

    As someone who has an unhealthy obsession with the grilled cheese sandwich, I must say that this particular grilled cheese looks absolutely delicious. The photos, especially the last one, are awesome. I will definitely have to try this.

    Tortilla chips is an interested crunchy twist to the sandwich. Nice addition! I might have to use pepperjack cheese for extra spice!

    Hi everyone,

    I cooked this sandwich a few days ago at home using Spanish cheese as it was the only one I had at home, I have to say it was awesome, it really improved the taste, why don´t you give it a try?, just have a look at this website which I find very interesting.
    Kind regards
