Ingredients

  • 1  Tablespoon  butter, room temperature
  • slices bread
  • slice Monterey jack cheese
  • slice Cheddar cheese
  • 1  Tablespoon  guacamole
  • 1  Tablespoon  black beans, cooked
  • Pickled jalapenos, to taste

Directions

Spread the butter on the outside of both slices of bread. Then, layer the cheese, guacamole, beans, and jalapeños on one slice of bread before closing the sandwich.

Heat a frying pan, then place the sandwich in the pan to cook, flipping it once after the cheese has started to melt and the bread is brown. The sandwich is done cooking when both sides are browned and the cheese is fully melted.

Nacho Shopping Tip

How hot is that chile pepper? Fresh peppers get hotter as they age; they will achieve a more reddish hue and sometimes develop streaks in the skin.

Nacho Cooking Tip

When preparing appetizers try to avoid repetition of similar foods and flavors - aim for variety in textures, colors, and cooking methods.

Nacho Wine Pairing

Malbec, syrah/shiraz, mourvèdre, Rhône blends, zinfandel, petite sirah, primitivo, or carménère with meat- and bean-based dishes; viognier or grüner veltliner with seafood dishes.
