Yummy! This was such a tasty sandwich. I used pepperjack cheese...didn't know if that was what the recipe meant or not but it worked great. I also used a thick sliced wheat bread, but would love to try it with the french baguette. My husband and I loved this for a nice supper with some homemade potato chips on the side. I made extra chili mayo because I expected it to be great with the chips and it was! Thanks so much for posting this yummilicious recipe! Made for Football Pool 2008!
