Time: 25 minutes. We love how spicy this sandwich is, but if you prefer less heat, cut back on the chipotle mayo and the green chiles.

Roast Beef and Two-Chile Grilled Cheese on Onion Rolls

Photo: Annabelle Breakey
 1/4 cup mayonnaise
 1 tablespoon minced canned chipotle chiles (about 4)
 4 onion rolls
  About 2 tsp. olive oil
 1/2 pound pepper jack cheese, thinly sliced
 1/2 pound thinly sliced rare roast beef
 4 canned mild green chiles, seeded, split, and dried with paper towels
Step 1

Stir together mayonnaise and chipotles and set aside.

Step 2

Preheat a panini press* to 350° (medium heat). Brush the outsides of rolls with oil. Split rolls. Spread bottom halves with 1 1/2 tsp. chipotle mayo each, then top each with 2 slices cheese; 2 or 3 slices roast beef; 1 chile, opened up flat; and 2 more slices cheese.

Step 3

Spread top halves of rolls with 1 1/2 tsp. chipotle mayo each and place on tops of sandwiches. Grill sandwiches 2 at a time until crisp and bubbling, 3 to 4 minutes. Repeat with remaining 2 sandwiches. Let sandwiches cool slightly, then slice with a serrated knife and serve.

Step 4

*If you don't have a panini press, use two pans to achieve the same effect: Cook your sandwiches in a frying pan or cast iron skillet and weight them with a heated cast iron skillet.
