I have a couple of food obsessions. A warm grilled cheese sandwich can change my day. Lately I have been exploring tasty grilled cheese creations. This is a new one that I would add to my grilled cheese flight. Basically if a taco and a grilled cheese had a little foodie baby, it would be a Taco Grilled Cheese. This lovely creation was a huge hit in this house. William stated, “Mom, I need you to write down this recipe so that I can make it for my kids one day.” Well, Buddy, you are 6 but here you go! Love, Mommy
Taco Grilled Cheese
1 lb. ground beef
1 package taco seasoning mix
8 slices American cheese
2 cups shredded Mexican cheese blend
butter (for spreading)
8 slices wheat bread
In a medium skillet over medium high heat, brown ground beef. Drain off any excess liquid and stir in the package of taco seasoning and ¾ cup of water. Bring to a boil, reduce heat and simmer for 5 minutes.
Pre-heat a skillet to medium high heat. Spread butter over one side of a slice of bread. Place butter side down into the skillet. Top with 2 slices American cheese, taco meat, and shredded Mexican cheese blend. Butter an additional slice of bread on one side and place it butter side up on top of the sandwich.
Cook in the skillet until lightly browned on the bottom and flip over. Continue cooking until the other side has browned and the cheese has melted. Repeat with remaining sandwiches.
