Celebrating National Grilled Cheese Day with a delicious Mexican-inspired sandwich that is perfect for lunch or dinner. It is simple to put together but with complex flavors that are sure to be a crowd-pleaser at your next dinner party.
- 4oz Tillamook Salted Butter
- 8 slices Tillamook Sharp Cheddar Cheese
- 8 slices of round French bread
- 8oz Tillamook Premium Sour Cream
- 1 package taco seasoning
- 1lb carne asada seasoned beef
- 2 cups of fresh arugula
Grill carne asada according to your favorite recipe or package directions if using prepackaged. In the meantime, mix your taco seasoning into your sour cream. Depending on the brand, you may not need to use the whole package, so be sure to taste as you mix. Butter one side of each slice of bread, and place a slice of cheese on the un-buttered side. Set aside. Once your carne asada has cooked, slice it very thinly against the grain.
Place two slices of bread in a pan on med-low, butter side down. Cover to let the cheese melt. Once cheese had melted, add about 1oz of your carne asada to one slice. Follow with a dollop of sour cream mixture and handful of arugula. Place the other slice of bread on top and press down with spatula. Continue cooking until both sides of the sandwich are golden brown.
Repeat for each sandwich.
Note: You will most likely have leftovers of the ingredients. Use them to make a yummy salad the next day!
