Del Real Pork Chile Verde Grilled Cheese with Poblano Chiles

Whenever I crave a childhood meal, something comforting comes to mind. Recently I've been craving grilled cheese. I mean, why wouldn't I? They are warm, slightly crispy, cheesy and delicious. So when I was informed about the Del Real Foods Blogger Recipe contest, I knew I would want to create a recipe that was not only tasty, but that was also easy and perfect for entertaining. 

I decided on using the Chile Verde packet of delicious pork as my inspiration and base for my recipe. I knew I wanted to do a grilled cheese. The idea of a grilled cheese filled with shredded pork in chile verde sauce and poblano chiles with warm creamy mozzarella cheese sounded like something I wanted to eat asap. Hopefully you all agree and I'm on to something here.

As I was making the grilled cheese, I decided to add some of the poblano chiles into my Vitamix with some of the mayo for a dipping sauce if desired. Best part, the recipe is so simple and easy to make dinner will be done in less than 30 min from start to finish.


1 package of Del Real Chile Verde
GF Bread, as many slices as desired. Recipe makes 5 large sandwiches
Mozzarella cheese slices
Roasted poblano chiles


Blend in mixer 1/2 cup of mayo with roasted poblano's and mix, keep in fridge when not using.
Warm Del Real Chile Verde Pork package in microwave for 5 minutes, set aside
Butter one side of each bread slice, approx 10 slices for 5 sandwiches.
Flip over and add layer of green chilli mayo, add a serving of Chile Verde, two slices of mozzarella cheese
Add whole roasted poblano to sandwich
Finish by adding top slice of bread
Place sandwich onto a warm pan or skillet
Repeat process for each sandwich
Each sandwich takes about 4-5 minutes each to get a gooey grilled cheese. About two minutes on each side.
Use leftover poblano mayo as a dipping sauce as desired
