The tastes of summer are terrific in this quick fix meal. You do NOT need a panini press for this sandwich.

This was delicious! My husband and son loved it, as did I. Will definitely make it again. The only changes I made were I used Pepper Jack only and omitted the Cheddar and used sourdough bread.

I followed this recipe exactly. It's pretty time consuming, but well worth it! I make this as often as possible. Definitely a keeper. I've made this several times and haven't had the chance to review until now. Thank you so much, Vicki for a wonderful recipe!

Absolutely delish! I used a 100 calorie La Tortilla Factory tortilla and low-fat cheese. I also added a spoonful of light sour cream to the spread. Perfection! Thanks for sharing!
