These are very nutritious and delicious and satisfying, a fell good food I should add! I spread 1 tsp Grey Poupon on 1 slice of 100% whole wheat bread with 1/4 cup of mixture (I didn't add cheese to mixture because im refrigerating the veggie mixture) then topping off with 1 slice of colby cheese. This is a grand total of 140 calories, I had 2 slices for lunch! It's yummy, im using the rest of the veggie mixture in my eggs for breakfast! Thank you for the recipe!!!


Wonderful! I've made toasted cheese sandwiches all my life, but the veggies and chili powder make them far more interesting. I prefer using whole grain bread.

This is really very good...I spread a little dijon mustard on the bread before toasting to make it a little more moist.
