Beef/ Sandwiches & Such

Hot Beef Chili-Jack Sandwiches

When shopping for you canned green chilies, you pretty much have two options (or at least I did at the 3 stores I hit.) Either the 7 oz can or the 27 oz can.  If you are big fan of the chilies, go big or if you can use them in another dish.  Otherwise, stick with the 7 oz and cut the chilies in half and layer them thinly.

My taste testers loved the sandwich.  One wanted mayo added to it, so if you like your sandwiches wet, add your favorite mayo.

      Hope you enjoy. Add extra chili and cheese, maybe a thick slice of tomato and some onion for your vegetarian version.
