Success
Use hoagie buns or other buns with a firm, crusty outside. This filling is moist, so soft breads, such as hot dog buns, aren't the best choice.
Health Twist
These sandwiches are packed with enough veggies to count as a serving of vegetables. Use reduced-fat mayonnaise and reduced-fat cheese to trim the fat to 11 grams and the calories to 380 per sandwich.
Did You Know?
Savor the heat of Southwest cooking. Use a little more jalapeño chile, and add a hot shot by using medium or hot salsa.
