Even before I knew anything at all about cooking, I felt I was a master of Grilled Cheese Sandwiches. So Simple, but so delicious, and classic. The recipe below has been modified to my taste, but I will make a note with the original heat level. This is delicious for lunch or dinner, and is not difficult to make.
Grilled Cheese Sandwiches with Spicy Tomato Cheese Soup
1 can of Campbell’s Fiesta Nacho Cheese Soup
8 oz shredded Mexican Cheese Blend
1 Loaf of Bread, either Ciabatta, French, or a regular high-quality bread, sliced 1/2″ thick
1/2 stick of Butter
1 can of Campbell’s Condensed Tomato Soup
1 can of Campbell’s Condensed Cheddar Cheese Soup
1 c of Milk*
2 c Spicy Vegetable Juice*
2 tsp Hot Sauce
1 tsp Italian Seasonings
Sandwiches: 1. Heat a pan over medium heat on the stove. In a bowl combine the Fiesta Nacho Cheese Soup with the shredded cheese. Spread the cheese mixture over bread slices, and butter the outside of the bread. Place the sandwiches in the pan and cook until golden brown on both sides, and the cheese has become melted.
Soup: 2.Combine all the soup ingredients in a medium saucepan, and heat over medium-high heat, stirring occasionally. Serve in smaller bowls, or mugs with the sliced sandwiches.
*Omit the 1 c of Milk and add another cup of Spicy Vegetable Juice, if you like Spicy-Medium heat in your foods.
This is also a great “Leftover Item,” especially when there is just two to feed. Just leave the soup in the fridge and the cheese spread in a Tupperware bowl, again in the fridge, and when you feel like having more, all you’ll need to do is heat up a pan to cook the grilled cheese and reheat the soup! Super easy and still delicious!
