Ingredients

  • 2

    tablespoon(s) fresh lime juice

  • 1

    teaspoon(s) honey

  • 3

    tablespoon(s) olive oil

  • Kosher salt

  • Pepper

  • 1

    small red onion, thinly sliced

  • ½

    cup(s) chopped fresh cilantro

  • 1

    tablespoon(s) adobo sauce, from canned chipotles in adobo

  • 2

    teaspoon(s) brown sugar

  • 8

    slice(s) (thick) country bread

  • 8

    ounce(s) extra-sharp white Cheddar, coarsely grated

Directions

In a medium bowl, whisk together lime juice, honey, 1 tablespoon oil, and 1/4 teaspoon each salt and pepper. Add onion and cilantro and let sit, tossing occasionally, until ready to use. In a small bowl, whisk together adobo sauce and brown sugar. Brush one side of each slice of bread with remaining 2 tablespoon oil. Form sandwiches with bread (oiled side out), adobo mixture, cheese, and onion-cilantro mixture. Working in batches, cook sandwiches in a nonstick skillet, covered, over medium-low heat, until bread is golden brown and crisp and cheese has melted, 3 to 4 minutes per side. Transfer to a baking sheet and cover with foil to keep warm. Repeat with remaining sandwiches.
