Chicken Artichoke Panini: my favorite sandwich based off my favorite snack, artichoke jalapeno dip!

I love making sandwiches for dinner. Paired with a bowl of soup and you’ve got an easy meal that screams “comfort food.”

One of my favorite snacks is Artichoke Jalapeno Dip. Have you tried this yet? It’s awesome.

And making the dip with Mezzetta products is a great decision. I love keeping jars of artichokes and jalapenos on hand. For dips.

And now for dinner too!

Did you know Mezzetta is having a sandwich contest? It’s aptly named, “MAKE THAT SANDWICH.” and the grand prize is $25,000. Umm, that’s a prize that I would like to win. So grab some of your favorite Mezzetta products, their available at your local grocery stores, and get creative!!! You’ll need to include at least two different Mezzetta products in your recipe, so check out their line of olives and stuffed olives, spreads, vegetables and much more. Get all the contest details here. And if you win, you better come back and let me know!! So exciting!!

2014 Mezzetta Make That Sandwich Banner

For my sandwich I used a jar of Mezzetta Grilled Artichokes and a jar of Mezzetta Jalapenos. Using a combination of mozzarella cheese, cream cheese and parmesan cheese it had the same delicious taste as my favorite dip. Because this was our dinner, I added some thick sliced deli chicken to give this sandwich a hearty boost of protein.

Cook this up like you would a grilled cheese, using a griddle or panini press. Eat hot and enjoy!
