Chile Relleno Sandwich

A delicious cousin of the Chile Relleno.   A  grilled  cheese sandwich that gets a flavor boost from a  green chile cheese spread.  Dip the sandwich in an egg batter and fry in some butter and you have yourself a great tasting lunch.  You can serve it with some salsa or a cup of hot soup.

Chile Rellano Sandwich

1/2 cup Green Chile Cheese Spread - you can find the recipe here
4 slices of sandwich bread
1 large egg
1/4 cup milk
2 tablespoons butter


1. Spread 1/4 cup of the Green Chile Cheese Spread on a slice of bread.  Top the spread with another slice of bread. Repeat with the remaining bread and cheese spread.   Set aside.
2. In a bowl, whisk the egg and milk together until blended.
3. In a large skillet, melt 1 tablespoon of butter over medium heat.  Dip both sides of the sandwich in the egg mixture.
4. Place the sandwich in the skillet.  Cook 2-3 minutes per side or until the sandwich is golden brown.  Repeat with the remaining butter and sandwich.

  1. Oh goodness, Geraldine! I have such a weakness for Chile Rellenos. I can't even imagine the goodness in a Chile Relleno Grilled Cheese Sandwich!

    Thank you so much for sharing...

  2. Really! It sounds great and is a must try. Chile Rellenos is the best and I can imagine how oozy cheesy delicious that sandwich has to be. Perfect lunch for this cold weather.
