Tropical Paradise Grilled Cheese with Habanero Mango Gouda + Mojo Pulled Pork

Mango Habanero Grilled Cheese with Mojo Pulled Pork

Ok, so yeah, still not cold here in Florida. Not even a little bit. But since all of the rest of you are suffering in mother nature’s frigidness, I figured I’d make y’all a sweet and spicy Grilled Cheese to transport you tropical paradise. Sounds pretty good right? One bite of this sandwich that’s loaded with mojo pork, mango habanero gouda, cilantro, refried black beans, butter and whtie bread, and you’ll be whisked away to warmer times. 

Say peace out to puffy coats and ugg boots (do people still wear uggs?), put on your swimsuit and turn up the cuban jazz. Your day is about to get so much more sunny and awesome.

Oh hey, look! We even made a little video so it’s even easier for you to make this mystic sandwich!

Don’t have time to watch the video?

Next, add a few cilantro leaves, the rest of the cheese and the top piece of bread. Make sure that the outside is covered in butter. Do this by either smearing room temp right on top, or like I did in the video and melt it onto the pan and brush it on top.

Let the grilled cheese cook for a few minutes on each side if you’re using a frying pan or act like a grilled chz boss and invest in the Cuisinart Griddler Elite and get ready for your world to change. Seriously, my world has changed from this machine. It’s amazing and you can detach the plates which makes cleaning about one thousand times easier than any press I’ve ever had before.
