Tex-Mex Grilled Cheese

With guacamole and peppers, this Tex-Mex Grilled Cheese is about to become a favorite dinner sandwich.

Spicy, cheesy and packed with veggies this Mexican style grilled cheese sandwich is sure to be a hit with both adults and kids.

So today’s Mexican style grilled cheese sandwich was not really planned but it just happened. I had leftover Mexican style sautéed veggies from last night and I wanted to make something different with them. With the limited time I had today to make lunch, this grilled cheese sandwich seemed like the perfect idea.

This Mexican style grilled cheese sandwich has the veggies, cheese and tiny bit of salsa. I also added a veggie burger to give some protein to the dish. You can spread some refried beans or paneer or a fried egg to make it more filling and substantial.
