Spicy Sandwich

Spicy Sandwich

“Spicy, spicy”, that’s what I like in anything. It doesn’t mean I don’t eat non-spicy things! We eat sandwiches once a week either for lunch or dinner and it is our best companion during journeys. Easy to prepare, easy to carry and is so filling.

Here is one such sandwich I prepared recently.

Spicy Sandwich
  • 2 Bread Slices (I used Whole Wheat)
  • 4 Pickled Jalapeno Slices
  • 1 Tomato, sliced into rounds
  • Some French’s Mustard
  • Some Kraft’s Fat free Ranch
  • 1 small Onion, cut into strips (Optional)
  • 4 Slices of Cucumber
  • Some leaves of Lettuce (Optional)
  • Hot Sauce (Optional)
  • 1 Slice of Cheese
  • Butter (Optional)
  1. Arrange the cucumber slices on one bread slice and then place the cheese slice on top.
  2. Then arrange, tomato slices, jalapeno slices, onion strips (if using) in order. 
  3. Pour some mustard sauce, some ranch and some hot sauce (if using) over these slices.
  4. Finally cover these with the lettuce leaves and place the other slice of bread on top.
  5. Heat a non-stick pan and place this prepared sandwich on it. Press softly with a spatula until one side turns golden brown in color. Then flip the sandwich carefully and let the other side get toasted into golden brown color. Be careful not to burn it.
  6. If desired you can apply butter on both sides of the bread slices before placing them on the pan. I didn’t do it though.
  7. Take out the sandwich carefully and let it cool for a little while, if you prefer to eat it cold. Then cut into triangles and enjoy with a glass of orange juice or any your favorite juice.
  8. The spiciness in this sandwich comes due to the jalapeno slices, hot sauce and the onion slices. If you don’t prefer to eat it spicy, omit all those while making this sandwich.
  9. Isn’t this a very simple sandwich ever?

This flies off to take part in the Sandwich Festival 2008 being hosted by Anupama of Food-n-More.

Last but not the least; I was honored by Vandana Rajesh of Cooking up Something Nice, with this wonderful award. I am really so happy to receive it again. Thank you so much for thinking about me, Vandana! You have made me so overjoyed.

I think I need to have a drink, just reading the spicy ingredients. Earlier even I used to eat spicy food, but changed a LLLLLLoooooott now. First because of my husband and now I also got acid reflux problem, so going easy on spice. But I would love to try this sandwich without the extra heat.
