This is an easy, cheesy light lunch or dinner recipe. I made this with Tillamook cheddar and used sourdough bread and it was great. Adapted from Taste of Home.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Butter one side of all 4 slices of bread.
  2. Top unbuttered sides of 2 slices of bread with one slice of cheddar each.
  3. Sprinkle both slices with the chilies, then lay the other 2 slices of cheese on top of the chilies.
  4. Top with last 2 slices of bread, buttered side out.
  5. In a large skillet over medium heat, cook sandwiches on both sides until golden brown and cheese is melted.

This sandwich is a specialty of our golf club in the White Mountains of AZ. They have named it the "Pine Special" which i think is a good name. I always ask for a slice or two of tomato to be added to this sandwich. I think this makes it "extra-special".

This is really good! I used whole grain bread. Love green chilis and this is a great way to jazz up a humble grilled cheese sandwich. Thanks for sharing the recipe!

Soooo delicious. I love recipes that are easy and this definitely fits the bill. The chilis are such a nice, unexpected addition to the gooey cheddar. Mm, mmmm, mmmmmm! Thanks for a great, simple snack/meal idea!
