Grilled Cheese with Veggies Spicy, cheesy and packed with veggies this Mexican style grilled cheese sandwich is sure to be a hit with both adults and kids.

After 2 Italian style fusion dishes, today I am going south of the border to Mexico. So for the last day of this week’s BM, I made this Mexican style grilled cheese sandwich. It is cheesy, spicy and absolutely delicious.

I had a million ideas for this week’s blogging marathon ‘fusion at its best’ theme. I wanted to try Indian style American desserts or Sandwiches. Then there was Korean style Mexican dishes and on and on.Grilled Cheese with VeggiesBut then I didn’t get to make anything I planned for. Time seemed to slip out of my hands and I am left with ideas now 🙁 I Hope Valli has this theme again some time soon, so I can make some of those dishes.

So today’s Mexican style grilled cheese sandwich was not really planned but it just happened. I had leftover Mexican style sautéed veggies from last night and I wanted to make something different with them. With the limited time I had today to make lunch, this grilled cheese sandwich seemed like the perfect idea.Grilled Cheese with VeggiesThis Mexican style grilled cheese sandwich has the veggies, cheese and tiny bit of salsa. I also added a veggie burger to give some protein to the dish. You can spread some refried beans or paneer or a fried egg to make it more filling and substantial.

Avocado or guacamole would also be a good addition to this sandwich. All in all, this is a flavor packed sandwich that is sure to be a hit with adults and kids alike. Lets check out what my fellow marathoners have cooked today for BM# 97.
