Kicked Up Grilled Cheese Sandwiches

You all already know I am a power grocery shopper. I don’t go to one store and done. A grocery shopping trip is an entire Thursday afternoon and early evening. When I go out shopping – I want an easy meal for dinner. (Have you checked out the recipes on the Weekly Wow site?)

Growing up, one of my favorite meals was grilled cheese and tomatoes. I remember my Mom making it for us on busy weeknights. As much as I love grilled cheese with tomatoes, it could use a little extra kick.

So the question was, how can I turn the plain tomato and grilled cheese into something with a little more flavor, but keep it simple for a weeknight dinner after shopping.

It turns out that it was simply these little yummy gems. The  Ro*Tel® Diced Tomatoes & Green Chilies added such a kick to my grilled cheese – but it was still very simple to make.
