There is just nothing better than a grilled cheese sandwich, except a grilled cheese with roasted green chiles! A while back I had a version of this sandwich at a restaurant and was immediately in love. I knew right away I would be adapting it at home.
Start with 1-2 green chiles (enough for 1 sandwich)
Green chiles are mild but have a nice flavor.
Slice up the chiles.
Cook the chiles in a little olive oil, garlic and a pinch of salt on low heat.
Cook for about 10-15 minutes or until they are cooked down and until the skin is blistered.
Prepare the bread- I like a good french bread or even sourdough bread.
Instead of butter, I like to brush olive oil on the bread.
Add your favorite cheese.
Do your best to peel the skin from the chiles- if not thats ok- it will still be yummy.
Add the chiles to the sandwich.
Place the sandwich on a grill or in a pan (with just a little olive oil).
Cook until the bread is crispy and the cheese is melted.
Slice up and serve.
I like mine sliced into four
and with a green salad.
