I used my large Electric Skillet to make for me and Bobby. So this recipe is for 3 sandwiches...he always has two of everything! :-)
1 can of Chili (with or without beans) heated
6 slices of bread (I used white bread, but Texas Toast would even be better)
6-8 slices processed, pasteurized American cheese (or even shredded cheddar)
Soft butter (For spreading on bread)
3-4 Tablespoons diced Onion
Optional: (slices fresh jalapenos)
- Heat Electric Skillet to 300-350 (medium heat). Butter one side of each slice of bread and place butter-side-down. Top each slice of bread with 1 1/2 slices of American cheese and cover. Cook until cheese melts and bread browns, about 1-2 minutes. Remove from heat.
- Press a few Fritos corn chips into one side of the sandwich, nestling the chips down in the cheese.
- Top with about 1/4 cup of the chili per sandwich. Be careful not to add too much. When eaten in sandwich form, a little bit of beef chili goes a long way. Finish with diced onions and the (optional sliced jalapeno), and top with other slice of bread.
- Cut diagonally and serve. We had some celery stuffed with peanut butter with ours and loved every bite.
