Grilled Cheese And Chorizo Sandwiches

I changed this only slightly.  I used the light wheat bread I had on hand and I don't care much for pickled jalapenos so I took a few slices of the jalapeno from the salmon night and put it in some pickle brine for a few days.  The pepper jack was not hot at all so I added the pickled chilies after cooking.  I don't know if they are particularly hot this year or if I though jalapenos were milder but they did add a lot of kick.  All in all tasty, easy and will be made again.  Oh and for the salad dressing I used the leftover dipping sauce from last night.  It was good, but I think next time will thin it a bit with olive oil and add some salt.

minutes.  Cut the sandwiches in half and serve.
