“My goal was to combine two of my favorite foods: guacamole and grilled cheese. I made a simple, yet tasty, guacamole that doesn’t overshadow the deliciousness of the Tillamook Monterey Jack Cheese. The result? A creamy, fresh-tasting grilled cheese unlike anything you’ve ever tried!” - Angela Williamson of Fab Find Foodie

Let's Make This Recipe!

  • ½ of a jalapeño, roasted and rough chopped
  • 3 medium-sized avocados
  • Juice of half a small lime
  • 1 tablespoon green onion, sliced
  • 1 teaspoon red onion, minced
  • 1 clove garlic (use a garlic press)
  • ¼ teaspoon kosher salt
  • ⅛ teaspoon freshly cracked black pepper
  • 6 tablespoons Tillamook Unsalted Butter
  • 6 slices Goldminer California Sourdough Square Bread (slices are approximately 6 inches long)
  • 6 Tillamook Monterey Jack Cheese Slices
  • Roast the jalapeño
  • Step 1

    Cut jalapeño in half and remove seeds and ribs. Place on a small baking sheet lined with foil.

  • Step 2

    Put baking sheet underneath the broiler and roast for 5 minutes, or until skin is bubbly and darkened. Immediately place in a small bowl and cover with saran wrap.

  • Step 3

    After 5 minutes, remove jalapeño and remove the outer skin. Chop one of the jalapeño halves and set aside.

  • Prepare the guacamole
  • Step 1

    Scoop the center of 3 medium-sized avocados into a small bowl and gently mash together, leaving it fairly chunky.

  • Step 2

    Add the fresh lime juice, green and red onion, garlic, and jalapeño and mix. Add salt and pepper.

  • Assemble the sandwich
  • Step 1

    Preheat a non-stick skilled on medium heat. Butter one side of 3 slices of bread.

  • Step 2

    Spread 3 tablespoons guacamole on each of the dry sides of the bread. Place buttered side of bread with guacamole down in preheated pan.

  • Step 3

    Top with 2 slices of cheese and second slice of bread. Butter the top of the bread. Cook for 2-3 minutes, until bottom side of the bread is golden brown.

  • Step 4

    Flip the sandwich over with a spatula and cook an additional 2 minutes until the bread is golden brown. Allow grilled cheese to sit for one minute before cutting in half.
