Author Creative Culinary


  • 4 Tbsp olive oil divided
  • 1 can green chiles chopped
  • 1 medium onion diced
  • Bread - 8 slices - I did use some great chiabatta bread but use what you have
  • 1 package Queso Fresco cheese; ours was 12 oz.
  • Chipotle aioli
  • ¼ cup Mayonnaise
  • Adobo chile sauce
  • Combine sauce with mayonnaise to taste...some like it hot!


  • Dice onion and saute in 2Tbsp of olive oil until translucent, about 5-7 minutes
  • Add green chiles, salt and pepper and cook at low temperature for 10 minutes to meld flavors
  • Brush bread slices on one side with olive oil
  • Place four bread slices with olive oil side down in skillet
  • Layer cheese on top of bread, top with chile/onion mixture
  • Slather 2nd piece of bread with Chipotle mayonnaise
  • Top cheese and chile mixture with 2nd bread layer, olive oil side facing up
  • Grill til browned on both sides and cheese is melted


I must admit, I did wish I had some bacon on hand...adding a couple of slices of crisp bacon to each sandwich would still make this an easy and delicious dish![br][br]More: Sadly this little place has gone out of business and has been replaced with a pizza joint. So glad I recreated this as a reminder...and why does every place I love die. :(
