Recipe Overview

Spicy Tillamook Pepper Jack Cheese, creamy avocado and cilantro butter are grilled to perfection on slices of thick, buttery Texas toast. Dip in spicy salsa and enjoy!

Ingredients List

  • 4 slices Texas toast (not the frozen kind- you can find this with the other sliced breads)
  • 3 tablespoons unsalted butter, at room temperature
  • 1/8 teaspoon salt
  • 2 tablespoons cilantro, finely chopped
  • 2 slices Tillamook Pepper Jack Cheese
  • 1 avocado, thinly sliced
  • salsa, for dipping


Stir the chopped cilantro, salt and butter together until spreadable and smooth. Spread the butter mixture on one side of each slice of bread. Place two slices of bread buttered side down on a preheated grill pan over medium heat. Top each with a slice of cheese and 2-3 slices of avocado. Place the remaining two slices of bread, buttered side up on top. Cook for 2 minutes, then flip, cooking until cheese is melted and bread is lightly browned.
