    A Good Thing's Note:

    This little sandwich will make you want to slap somebody...probably me! I should have shared this little darling a long time ago. It's not my recipe but my dear friend, Babs. The combination of pepper jack cheese and black beans with purple onion on rye is about all one could ask for in a quick fix that tastes utterly divine.

      I didn't have rye bread so I used multi-grain. Next time I'll use more cheese and less beans but I like all the flavors together.

      Update - made this again but lightened it up quite a bit and it was good. I used a light flatout bread, reduced fat monterey jack cheese and butter spray for grilling. I'll make it again - I figure it to be about 6 points plus for Weight Watchers.

      this was so good -- as one of the reviewers suggested, i mashed my beans slightly to get them to stay on and i also mixed the chopped onions into the beans -- but other then that no changes -- it was so good -- thanks for sharing
