Actually, it’s National Spicy Guacamole Day, if you want to be technical, but…meh. I love guacamole, so I am excited to celebrate this food holiday! I already have other plans for dinner, but since I eat Mexican food at least once a week, I’ll surely make up for it soon!
To help you celebrate such a fine day, I’m reposting my guacamole grilled cheese. It’s an easy dinner you could throw together tonight! It’s a flexible recipe, so you know, just use whatever bread and cheese you like or have on hand. You could also put tomato on this, or hey, even bacon! The sky’s the limit!
Guacamole Grilled Cheese
- Multi-grain bread
- Butter or margarine
- Sharp white cheddar cheese
- Green onion cheddar cheese (or pepper jack, or monterey jack)
- Avocado smash or guacamole (homemade or store bought)
Butter one side of each piece of bread. Heat nonstick skillet over medium-low heat. I like to cook my grilled cheese at pretty low heat to give the cheese time to melt before the bread gets overdone. Lay bread in skillet, butter side down. Add one of the varieties of cheese, spread on about 1-2 tablespoons of guacamole. Caution: I know you love guacamole, but if you get too much, it will all just squish out. Cover with the other variety of cheese, and top with second piece of bread, butter side up. Cook for about five minutes, or until bread is nicely browned. Flip and brown other piece of bread. Let stand for a minute to allow cheese to cool and then cut in half.
