Roast beef and two-chile grilled cheese (can be made veggie too!)

This was a recipe I sampled at the Sunset Celebration Weekend. It was so good that I had to make it immediately. You could easily make this vegetarian by substituting a big 'ol slice of heirloom tomato for roast beef.

{Recipe from Sunset Kitchens}

Makes 4 sandwiches
15 min

1/4 c mayonnaise
1 tbs canned chipotle chile (minced)
4 onion rolls or fresh kaiser rolls
2 tbs olive oil
1/2 lb pepper jack cheese
1/2 lb sliced roast beef (or heirloom tomato for veggie option)
1 small can mild green chili. Seeded and split in half.

1. Combine mayo and minced chipotle chili in small bowl.

2. Preheat panini press or grill pan. Brush outsides of rolls with olive oil. Spread rolls with chipotle mayo then top with 2 slices cheese, 2-3 slices roast beef (or thick tomato slice), 1 green chili and 2 more cheese slices.

3. Place in panini press or in grill pan (I don't have a panini press so I used a pie plate as a weight on top of sandwiches while they cooked). Grill until cheese is melted. Slice in half and serve.

Next up...I want to tell you about all the great things I saw and learned at Sunset Celebration!
