Guacamole Grilled Cheese

In honor of these last two days of National Grilled Cheese month, I bring you yet another wonderful version to try.  This version was inspired by my love for spice and all things chips and dip.  Because what goes better with tortilla chips than homemade guacamole?

Ingredients for a Guacamole Grilled Cheese Sandwich Recipe by Amanda's ApronIf you don’t know what Adobo is, allow me to introduce you.  It is the Latin version of Mrs. Dash.  If you don’t have access to it, it is primarily made up of salt, garlic powder, oregano, black pepper, and a bit of turmeric.  It is basically essential to any true Central American Spanish dish.  When I finally started cooking with it, my husband fell in love with me all over again.  This is powerful stuff, people!

First, make the guacamole if you haven’t already.  My simple recipe is a pretty perfect balance to please any palette.  You can make it spicier if you wish by adding additional jalapeños.

Slice the cheese and bread.  (If your husband hasn’t eaten all the bread by the time you’re done taking pictures…not that THAT has ever happened in our kitchen…)  I cut my whole cuban loaf into quarters, and used two quarters which I later cut in half to create 4 sandwiches.  Basic math: 1 quarter of loaf = 2 sandwiches.

Monterey Jack is delicious on grilled cheese | Amanda's ApronButter the outside of the bread slices and generously dash the adobo on top of the buttered bread, spreading evenly with a butter knife if you wish.

Rub butter and adobo into the bread for maximum flavor | Amanda's ApronHeat a skillet to medium.  When the skillet is hot, drop the first piece of bread in gently, butter side down and layer with cheese.

This is the type of grilled cheese you can squish with your spatula a little bit because the bread is so thick, it can handle a little squishing.  Just don’t squoosh too hard or all the guac will fall out!

Flip the sandwich once the bottom has browned and the cheese has begun to melt.
