The perfect combination of cheese, bacon and onions make this grilled cheese sandwich one to be desired by many.

Ingredients:

Directions:

In a large skillet over medium heat, melt 1 Tbsp of butter. Add onions and 1 tsp of Slap Ya Mama Low Sodium Blend Seasoning. Stirring consistently, sauté onions until they are golden brown and soft. Remove from pan and set aside on a plate.

Using the same skillet, fry the bacon until crispy. Remove from pan and set aside on a paper towel covered plate to let drain.

In a bowl, combine mayonnaise, Slap Ya Mama Cajun Pepper Sauce and ½ tsp of Slap Ya Mama Low Sodium Blend Seasoning. Mix well and set aside.

Sandwich Assembly: Spread mayo mixture on the inside of each slice of bread. Working from the bottom slice up, add 4 pieces of bacon, 2 slices of cheese, onions, 4 pieces of bacon, 2 more slices of cheese and top with a slice of bread. Using softened butter, spread 1 Tbsp of butter on the outside of the top slice of bread.

In a skillet over medium-low heat, place sandwich butter side down. Butter the top side of the sandwich with another 1 Tbsp and continue grilling sandwich on both sides until the bread is golden brown and the inside of the sandwich is ooey gooey with melted cheese.

Using a sharp serrated knife, cut sandwich in half and enjoy.

Mexican Restaurant Chicken Soup

Mexican Restaurant Chicken Soup

by Sandra of 37 Cooks

Introducing Slap Ya Mama’s Mexican Restaurant Chicken Soup brought to you by 37 Cooks. This delectable recipe features our Cajun jambalaya dinner mix and your choice of chicken breasts or rotisserie chicken for a taste so good, you’ll want to be home sick eating it all week.

When I’m coming down with a cold or when I just feel down and out, I want Mexican restaurant chicken soup. Do you know the kind of soup I’m talking about? I call it sick day soup but it’s often called Caldo de Pollo on menus. I usually call my husband and ask him to stop by our local Mexican restaurant to pick some up on his way home from work, but if he’s traveling and I’m not feeling well? The last thing I want to do is leave the house to go get that soup.

Surprisingly, the Slap Ya Mama Jambalaya dinner mix has many of the same ingredients as my beloved soup! You can bet it will always be a staple in my pantry! Sorry, El Porton Mexican Restaurant! I’ll be making my own soup from now on! 

serves 4 for dinner or 8 as a first course

32 ounces chicken stock
4 cups water
2 carrots, cut into 1/4-inch slices
2 ribs of celery, cut into 1/4-inch slices
1 box Slap Ya Mama Cajun Jambalaya Dinner Mix
1-2 chicken breasts, cooked and torn or cut into pieces (may use rotisserie chicken)
1 avocado, peeled, pit removed, sliced
Cilantro, chopped
1 lime, cut into fourths, visible seeds removed
Fresh jalapeno slices, optional

In a large saucepan, bring chicken stock and water to a boil. Turn heat to low, add carrots, celery, and Slap Ya Mama Cajun Jambalaya Dinner Mix. Cover saucepan and let the soup simmer for 20 minutes. Do not peek! While the soup cooks, add the chicken, avocado slices, cilantro, and lime slices to your serving bowls. You may add the optional jalapeno slices. Remove saucepan from the heat and stir. Taste for seasoning and add salt and pepper if necessary. Serve immediately.

Note: Do not make this soup ahead of time. It must be served immediately. The rice will expand and soak up all additional broth. If you have leftovers, you have two choices. Discard it or be prepared to add additional broth.
