4 sandwiches


  • 3 chorizo sausages (6 ounces), thinly sliced on the diagonal

  • 2 tablespoons unsalted butter, softened

  • 8 slices of sourdough bread, cut from a pullman loaf

  • 6 ounces Pepper Jack cheese, thinly sliced

  • 2 tablespoons drained and sliced pickled jalapeños

  • 6 ounces Havarti cheese, thinly sliced


  1. In a large skillet, cook the sliced chorizo over moderately high heat, stirring occasionally, until lightly browned, about 3 minutes. Drain the chorizo on paper towels and wipe out the skillet.

  2. Butter the bread on 1 side and turn 4 slices buttered side down on a work surface. Top with Pepper Jack, chorizo, pickled jalapeños and Havarti. Close the sandwiches with the remaining bread slices, turning the buttered side up.

  3. Preheat 2 large skillets. Add the sandwiches and cook over moderate heat, turning once, until the bread is golden and crisp, about 8 minutes. Cut the sandwiches in half and serve.
