ingredients

  • MOCK ENCHILADA FILLING (USE ONLY THE SPECIFIED OR A GOOD CUMIN-SEASONED TACO SAUCE)

  • 2 cups shredded sharp cheddar cheese
  • 1 (4 1/2 ounce) can chopped black olives
  • 2 tablespoons minced sweet onions
  • 2 tablespoons taco bell brand taco sauce (or my $notetemplate1$)
  • 1 teaspoon instant masa harina (optional)
  • 4 tablespoons real mayonnaise
  • BREAD

  • sliced soft sweet sourdough French bread
  • FOR GRILLING

  • real butter

directions

  • COMBINE the MOCK ENCHILADA FILLING ingredients in a small bowl (you may add more or less of any of the ingredients to suit your own flavor and consistency preferences, or add 1 small seeded diced pickled jalapeno pepper and 1 teaspoon finely minced fresh cilantro or a pinch of crushed oregano for a more piquant flavor).
  • SPREAD the MOCK ENCHILADA FILLING over one slice sourdough bread; TOP with remaining slice bread to make a sandwich.
  • REPEAT sandwich-making process until all of the filling is used (you can make as many as 5 sandwiches, or use more filling on fewer sandwiches).
  • PLACE 1 teaspoon of butter in a griddle or skillet, per every one sandwich placed, over low heat until butter melts.
  • PLACE sandwich(es) onto preheated griddle.
  • SWIRL sandwich(es) around evenly in melted butter in skillet until evenly coated.
  • COVER with a lid.
  • GRILL sandwich(es) slowly over low heat until golden and crisp on one side; GENTLY turn sandwiches over with a spatula; COVER; GRILL until the other side is golden and crisp.
  • REPEAT grilling process for remaining sandwiches.
  • SERVE immediately and ENJOY (I like to serve mine with taco sauce on the side for dipping)!
