Make Fajita Grilled Cheese sandwiches for a switch up on the traditional. We love the addition of smoky peppers!
It only took me 41 years to realize that I have a problem. I’m utterly addicted to spicy food. It’s bad. I mean it’s not bad that I like spicy food; it’s just that my affliction runs deep! There isn’t a food out there that I don’t think would be better with a little heat. Heck, even chocolate tastes better with a little chili powder. Am I totally alone in this train of thought?
My spice-loving habit came to a head the other day when I noticed my daughter’s face after she caught me saturating my hummus with hot sauce. It was a look of pure disgust and quite frankly, it was a look touched with a bit of fear. I felt like a hideous monster.
The thought occurred to me that it might be time to seek help. I thought about doing a Google search for any “spicy food anonymous” groups, but felt quite confident that none existed. Therefore, I decided to take a less drastic approach. I decided to eat food like normal people.
The next day, instead of hot sauce infused hummus, I made this fajita grilled cheese! How’s that for a turn around? Just like your favorite fajita, this sandwich has lots of fresh peppers, onions, as well as meaty Portobello mushrooms. To satisfy my spicy tooth, I added several slices of Pepper Jack Cheese. Sliced avocados keep it creamy and cool.
I could eat this fajita grilled cheese every day. I’m turning over a new leaf, my friends. Instead of pouring hot sauce over everything I eat, I’m adding pepper jack cheese!
Ok, ok, I still have a lot of work to do when it comes to revamping my diet. One thing is for sure, the experimenting sure is fun.
