Grilled Cheese Chile Dippers are classic comfort food, basically grilled cheese sandwich strips that you dip in enchilada sauce or soup. Yummy!

Grilled Cheese Chile Dippers can be an appetizer or an ideal lunch, but definitely fits in the comfort food category. This was inspired by my visit to Steamboat in February – we had lunch at Hazie’s Bar & Grill at the top of the gondola and I had their grilled cheese strips with basil tomato soup. It was really yummy and simple – just strips of grilled cheese sandwich that you dip in the tomato soup.

So… I made my own version. My grilled cheese and chile sandwiches cut into strips. Then I served it with 3 different sauces – green enchilada sauce, red enchilada sauce, and burrito sauce. I liked the red enchilada sauce the best as it was the spiciest. But actually, a very good tomato soup would also be good. It’s pretty hard to go wrong with this. You could go nuts with this and dip it in a sriracha sauce or ranch dressing. Or maybe a queso dip or guacamole. Just use your imagination.

Got any other ideas? If you come up with another that works especially well, just email me and let me know! This is so easy, it’s a no-brainer to make again and again…

Hope you like it!
