Taco Grilled Cheese Sandwich

Taco Grilled Cheese Sandwich
This will be the last new grilled cheese for the National Grilled Cheese Month and it is possibly the tastiest, the taco grilled cheese. The basic idea is to take all of the flavours of taco night and stuff them into one rather large grilled cheese sandwich! This sandwich starts with some taco seasoned ground beef made with a homemade taco seasoning and then it continues with the classic taco toppings including salsa , lettuce, tomato, sour cream, guacamole and it is of course finished with plenty of melted cheese! With all of those ingredients this is one large sandwich and with the salsa, sour cream and guacamole in there it can be one messy sandwich. Feel free to omit the salsa and sour cream from the sandwich and serve them on the side for dipping and it is also fun to serve this grilled cheese topped with them along with the guacamole and eating it with a knife and fork. This sandwich is definitely a nice way to celebrate the upcoming Cinco de Mayo in grilled cheese style!

This was very good, but I thought the butter taste did not go with the other flavors very well. Next time I'll grill it with no butter - I've done it before with plain grilled cheese and actually prefer it. Wish I'd remembered that fact beforehand! It was not as messy as expected, which is a plus. It's definitely worth a try.

Mari Victorius: I'm glad you liked it! I like butter flavour here but you could easily omit the butter or replace it with oil, mayo, etc.

Perfect breakfast for my husband. At least is what he said

This was so good! Such a creative way tot use leftover taco meat. It was a little messy, but I don't think knife and fork messy. Delicious!!

Michelle: I'm glad you like it! Sometimes the messiest sandwiches are the best! :)
