Chiles and salsa spike a hoagie that's packed with veggies and cheese.
Updated Sep 9, 2010

Ingredients

  • 6 hoagie buns, split
  • 6 slices (3/4 oz each) Monterey Jack cheese, cut diagonally in half
  • 1/2 cup finely chopped cucumber
  • 1/4 cup mayonnaise or salad dressing
  • 1/4 cup Old El Paso™ Thick 'n Chunky salsa
  • 1 teaspoon finely chopped seeded jalapeño chile
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cumin
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 2 medium tomatoes, seeded, finely chopped (1 1/2 cups)
  • 1 medium green bell pepper, finely chopped (1 cup)
  • 2 medium green onions, thinly sliced (2 tablespoons)

Steps

  • 1
    Scoop out bread from bottoms of buns; reserve for another use. Line bottom of each bun with 2 triangles of cheese.
  • 2
    In medium bowl, mix remaining ingredients. Divide evenly among buns. Serve immediately.

Tips from the Betty Crocker Kitchens

  • tip 1
    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.
  • tip 2
    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.
  • tip 3
    Savor the heat of Southwest cooking. Use a little more jalapeño chile, and add a hot shot by using medium or hot salsa.
