Grilled Chile Cheese Steak Sandwich

Grilled Green Chile Cheesesteak sandwich

A gourmet grilled cheese sandwich with premium roast beef, Jack cheese, roasted green chiles, onions, and tomatoes, grilled to perfection. A guaranteed hit!

Over the past few weeks, this has become a favorite in our house. It started out as just a gourmet grilled cheese sandwich featuring premium roast beef. Using quality roast beef is very important – I used the deli roast beef from King Soopers that normally sells for $12/lb. Usually I have it thin sliced and only use 3 slices. Really, really good! I make it sometimes with green chiles and sometimes without. It’s very easy to make, yet far beyond a typical grilled cheese sandwich.

I’ll be trying some variations on this – this is the kind of dish that you basically can’t screw up, especially if you stick with high quality ingredients.
