This recipe is like the beautiful love child of a taco and a grilled cheese sandwich... AHHHHHH!!!!

Ingredients:
1/4 cup frozen ground-beef-style soy crumbles (like the kind by Boca or MorningStar Farms)
1 tbsp. finely chopped onion
1/4 tsp. chili powder

1/8 tsp. garlic powder
2 slices light bread

2 tbsp. shredded reduced-fat Mexican-blend cheese
1 tbsp. finely chopped tomato
1 tsp. finely chopped cilantro
2 tsp. light whipped butter or light buttery spread (like Brummel & Brown)

Directions:
In a small microwave-safe bowl, mix soy crumbles, onion, and dry spices. Microwave for 45 seconds, or until warm. Stir well.

Lay bread slices flat, and spread both with the cheese wedge. Top one slice with 1 tbsp. shredded cheese, followed by the soy crumble mixture, tomato, cilantro, and remaining 1 tbsp. shredded cheese. Top with the other bread slice, cheesy side down. Spread the top of the sandwich with 1 tsp. butter.

Bring a skillet sprayed with nonstick spray to medium-high heat. Carefully place sandwich in the skillet, buttered side down. Spread the top with remaining 1 tsp. butter.

Cook until bread is lightly browned and cheese has melted, about 2 minutes per side, flipping carefully. Eat up!
