Southwestern Cheese Panini

So delish!

These are the perfect quick dinner. They're flavorful and filling without having many ingredients in them. The cheese goes a long way and the jalapenos added a nice hit of spiciness. Will definitely be adding these to my weekly rotation!

Quick, healthy and tasty!!!

Made these for lunch and my kids even loved them! We also spread a small amount of guacamole on one side fo the bread. Didn't have issues with soggy bread because I used a quick spray of canola oil and then made sure the pan was hot before cooking.

Healthy and tasty

So good

These were so good ... I agree with the reviewer who said they would never make a regular grilled cheese again. What a great way to get some veggies in and the small amount of cheese seemed like so much more.

Delicious and healthy
