Trust us: once you try grilling cheese, you’ll want to find a way to put it in everything. Thanks to its high melting point, the cheese stays firm when you fry it in a pan. Plus, the heat only heightens its salty and savory qualities. Next to a brightly colored jumble of veggies, it feels positively rapturous, delivering bites of cheesy goodness in between bursts of tomato, creamy avocado, sweet potato, and herbs.


Produced in a facility that processes milk, eggs, fish, shellfish, tree nuts, peanuts, wheat, and soybean.

Halve tomatoes lengthwise. Finely chop cilantro; place 1 TBSP in a large bowl and set aside. Mince garlic until you have 1 tsp (you may have a clove left over). Halve lemon. Halve, pit, and peel avocado, then cut into small cubes. Mince chili, removing ribs and seeds first if you prefer less heat.

Make Chimichurri

In a small bowl, combine remaining cilantro, ½ tsp cumin (we sent more), a pinch of minced garlic, and a pinch of chili (to taste). Stir in a squeeze of lemon and a large drizzle of olive oil. Season with salt, pepper, and more garlic and chili as desired. TIP: Add more lemon and olive oil as needed to give mixture a loose, drizzly consistency.

Fry Cheese

Take 4 oz (about half) of the grilling cheese and cut into ⅓-inch-thick slices (use the rest as you like). When sweet potatoes and onion are almost done, heat a drizzle of olive oil in a large pan over medium-high heat (use a nonstick pan if you have one). Add grilling cheese and cook until browned, 1-2 minutes per side.
