Ingredients

  • 1 ripe Avocado From Mexico pitted halved, meat scooped out, diced and masheda bowl
  • 1 teaspoon mayonnaise
  • 2 teaspoons yellow mustard
  • 1 teaspoon sauce from chipotles in adobo sauce optional, or more to taste
  • 4 sandwich bread slices whole wheat or white
  • 4 slices of black forest ham thinly sliced (or the ham or turkey of your choice)
  • 4 slices of Muenster or Monterrey Jack cheese

Instructions

  1. To make the avocado sandwich spread: In a bowl, mash the avocado and mix with the mayonnaise, mustard and the sauce from the chipotle chiles in adobo sauce, until completely smooth and combined.
  2. To assemble the sandwich rolls: With a rolling pin, roll out each sandwich bread slice until completely flattened. Leaving at least 1 inch around the edges of the flattened bread, spread a generous tablespoon of the avocado sandwich spread, top with a slice of ham and cheese. Roll up the sandwich and pat to flatten a bit with your hand once you are done. With a sharp knife, cut the ends of the sandwich roll (less than ΒΌ-inch) and cut the sandwich roll in half, diagonally.
  3. If sending them to school, send as is and lay them on their side.
  4. If you are eating them at home, you can place them in the toaster oven for 2 to 3 minutes and stand them up on the cut flat side, making a couple of towers.
