This Ain't Yo' Momma's Grilled Cheese: Mexican Pepper Jack

This was one of my favorite so far:

Artisan Bread (I used a Rye loaf)
Cabot Pepper Jack (we also tried the Cabot Chipotle, which was great as well.)
Sundried Tomatoes
REAL butter
Tortilla chips

The first thing to do is make a paste from the tortillas and butter. Put a few tortilla chips in a Magic Bullet or food processor and grind them to a powder. Then mix them with a couple of tablespoons of butter. (Make sure the paste is more butter and less tortilla or it will not spread on bread well.) Spread your butter mixture on a piece of bread and place butter down in your cast iron skillet. Spread on some guac and a few pieces of sundried tomato. Add of few pieces of cheese and the second piece of bread, tortilla butter face up.

Toast to perfection, turning every few minutes. And voila:

It is soooo yummy.
