We love the mix of mild green chiles (with their distinct vegetal flavors) and spicy poblanos. For fun, cut sandwiches into strips and serve with gazpacho.
Serves 4 (serving size: 1 sandwich)


+ Add To Shopping List
2 mild green chiles (such as Anaheim)
2 poblano chiles
1/4 teaspoon kosher salt
3 ounces cheddar cheese, shredded (about 3/4 cup)
1 1/2 ounces part-skim mozzarella cheese, shredded (about 1/3 cup)
8 (1-ounce) slices whole-wheat bread
Cooking spray


Hands-on: 10 Minutes

1. Preheat broiler to high.

2. Place chiles on a foil-lined baking sheet; broil 10 minutes or until blackened, turning once. Wrap in foil; let stand 10 minutes. Peel chiles; cut in half lengthwise. Discard seeds and membranes. Cut chiles into strips; place in a bowl. Add salt; toss.

3. Sprinkle half of cheeses evenly over 4 bread slices; top with chiles, remaining cheese, and remaining bread slices.
