This is a sponsored post written by me on behalf of Sara Lee® Artesano™ Bread, but my love for this bread is 100% my own.
This Taco Grilled Cheese Sandwich can be customized just like a taco! The original recipe is packed with bold flavor and a little heat for a lunch or dinner that’s sure to leave your mouth watering!
Grilled cheese sandwiches were a staple of my youth. Most days after school, my Nana made us either grilled cheese sandwiches or peanut butter cracker sandwiches, we could always count on one or the other. But now that I’m all grown up, I like to get a little more creative with my grilled cheese sandwiches and since April is National Grilled Cheese Month, I figured it was a good time to share one of these mouthwatering recipes with you!
Now, it’s just the two of us. And it seems like most meals are designed for a family of four, heck, even a lot of my dinner recipes are made for larger families, that’s why I always make sure to make things that reheat well. Tacos are a weekly staple in our house as I’m sure they are in many of yours, but if it’s just the two of you, what do you do with all that extra food? You make Taco Grilled Cheese Sandwiches of course!
These Taco Grilled Cheese Sandwiches are a great way to use up extra taco meat and toppings and the cheddar cheese and Sara Lee® Artesano™ Bread gives them a whole new feel so you don’t feel like you’re eating tacos “again”. The Artesano™ Bread takes the ordinary to extraordinary is about as close to homemade bread as I’ve found in stores, and the thick slices and soft texture are perfect for holding together a sandwich that’s loaded up like this one! The Artesano™ Bread is made without artificial colors, flavors, and without high-fructose corn syrup, making it a bread choice you can feel good about!
One of the things I love most about tacos is that they’re so customizable and everyone can make them their own! This Taco Grilled Cheese Sandwich is the same way, you can add and leave out what you want. However, I would refrain from adding things like sour cream and salsa directly to the sandwich because it could get messy, rather serve them on the side so you can dip each bite of your sandwich in them!
