Break your mayonnaise habit by slathering this fiery spread on sandwiches. Roasting brings out the sweetness of bell peppers, and chipotle pepper turns up the smoky-spicy quotient.



Ingredient Checklist


Instructions Checklist
  • Preheat grill to medium-high. Season chicken with salt and pepper and drizzle with oil. Grill chicken until cooked through, 5 to 6 minutes per side. Let stand 5 minutes, then slice on the bias.

  • Pulse bell peppers, chipotle pepper, garlic, almonds, and oregano in a food processor until coarsely chopped. Drizzle remaining 2 tablespoons oil and process until combined. Season with salt and pepper.

  • Spread each slice of bread with pesto. Layer with sliced chicken, escarole, and cheddar.

Cook's Notes

Swap this pesto for salsa the next time you make tacos, burritos, or rice and beans.
