While I enjoyed the spicy flavors & lower calorie options I felt the recipe needed more mayo to hold the mixture together. I made the sandwiches and wrapped individually in foil to pop in the oven. The buns were crisp & the center melted. I then added crisp lettuce & sliced tomatoes. Made for ZWT7.

This made a quick Friday night dinner served with sweet potato fries. I assume that the recipe calls for 1/4 cup of cheese. The mixture did require about 3 tablespoons of mayo to make it moist enough for our taste. I used gluten free multi-grain bread for the sandwiches. Made for Dinner and a Movie Part II during ZWT7.

What a yummy sandwich! Great lunchtime comfort food for a cool day. I love the kick it gets from the chipotle, a really nice flavor change from the usual tuna melt sandwich. I stuck with the original 1 tablespoon of mayo, as I like the sandwich to be more about the fish than anything else. It was just enough to hold the filling together, which for me was perfect. The green onions added a nice crunch, as well as great flavor. I skipped the arugala, as I don't really care for it. Overall, a really nice sandwich, and one I'd be happy to make again!
