White Cheddar Grilled Cheese Taco Sandwiches

My children love Taco Tuesday. As for me, I love using left overs to take the guess work out of meal planning for a couple days. Normally when I cook I make enough to have left overs and create new meals. My kids love warm sandwiches and I had some left over Taco Meat from last weeks Tacos that I stored so I decided to make White Cheddar Grilled Cheese Taco Sandwiches. I chose White Cheddar because my youngest hates cheese and its a good way to mask it, being that its white.

In terms of using Taco meat, the possibilities are endless with what type of meat you decide on using. I haven’t tried anything else besides the meat I have. However I am sure it will taste just as good. For an added crunch I also added some Tortilla chips. To give it that real Taco Tuesday feel since we are a little off schedule being that we eat Tacos on Tuesdays. Instead of using regular Ketchup as a dipping option as you do with traditional grilled cheese. I went with a Salsa instead and added a little bit of heat for taste.

The kids dove right in to the sandwiches, its much different than what they are use to eating. So I was a little weary if they would enjoy the concept of eating Taco Sandwiches as much as I did. Now that I have shared with you how much my family enjoyed this meal. Its time for me to share the recipe so you and your family can enjoy it too.
