Another from the stable of easy grilled cheese sandwiches – I do so many in the very similar way of cooking – but each is stuffed with different types of ingredients and gives you a whole different taste treat. This one is like easting a Caprese Salad.

Spicy hot and spicy good. You can tone this one down by using chili powder instead of chipotles, but it you like it hot, roll with it 🙂

2 T Miracle Whip lite
2 T light ranch dressing

Turning a regular sandwich into a Panini makes it much more special – and all you are doing is grilling it up and pressing it a bit to melt down all the contents really well. A have a Panini pan that goes right on the stovetop – I also have a George Foreman type grill, but I like doing it stovetop better.
