Fresh spices and jalapeños add a twist to these open-faced grilled cheese sandwiches. Serve them with a mixed green salad for a satisfying lunch.

  1. 1 pound whole milk mozzarella, shredded
  2. 1/2 cup finely chopped onion
  3. 1 medium tomato, finely chopped and drained on paper towels
  4. 2 jalapeños, seeded and finely chopped
  5. 1/2 cup chopped cilantro
  6. 1/2 cup mayonnaise
  7. 1/2 teaspoon cayenne pepper
  8. Salt and freshly ground black pepper
  9. Twelve 1/2-inch-thick slices hearty whole wheat bread
  1. Preheat the broiler. In a large bowl, mash together all of the ingredients except the bread.
  2. Arrange the bread slices on a baking sheet and toast them until lightly browned. Let cool slightly, then turn the toasts over and spread the mozzarella cheese mixture on top. Broil for 3 to 5 minutes, until melted and lightly browned. Serve hot.
