    JeriBinNC's Note:

    The cilantro pesto really makes this sandwich different. This is from Cuisine at Home magazine, and it was a huge hit at our house. Luckily, this made enough of the pesto to make the sandwiches twice!

      Wonderful variation of a great sandwich. I messed up on the instructions and combined the first 8 ingredients for the sauce. Excellent. I also used chipotle sauce instead of the peppers pureed and omitted the butter alltogether. Great sandwich with a kick.
