This Nacho Grilled Cheese Sandwich combines two favorites foods into one and is the perfect game day food!
I grew up on grilled cheese sandwiches. I loved them as a kid and I still love them as an adult. There is just something about a grilled cheese sandwich that makes me feel like everything is going to be o.k. and all is right with the world, at least for right then.
There is a lot of football, baseball and basketball watching going on at my house right now and that means there needs to be some ball game watching food and just about anything covered in cheese works! Nachos are always popular around here. I thought it might be fun to take two favorite foods, nachos and grilled cheese, and combine them into one. I took all our favorite nacho toppings – tomatoes, avocado, beans, black olives, green onions, cilantro, chips and of course cheese, and created a Nacho Grilled Cheese Sandwich.
And to make it even better, I combined some sour cream and taco seasoning to use as a spread on the sandwich. Of course I buttered both sides of my bread and then added all my nacho toppings. I ended with a slice of Sargento® Cheddar and a slice of their Pepper Jack to add a little kick to my Nacho Grilled Cheese Sandwich. This is a great idea for a game day party. Put out all the ingredients and let everyone put together their own combination.
I like to cook my grilled cheese in a cast iron skillet but any skillet or pan will do. You just want to get that bread nice and golden brown and that cheese melted.
I will admit, this is a little messy to eat but so worth it!! If you love this idea, make sure to check out my Pizza Grilled Cheese!
