  • 6Servings

Ingredients

  • 2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
  • 1 medium onion, chopped
  • 3 cloves garlic, peeled and smashed
  • 1 tablespoon fresh thyme leaves
  • 2 28 ounce cans whole fire-roasted tomatoes
  • 1 14 1/2 ounce can chicken broth
  • 1 chipotle chile in adobo sauce, chopped
  • 1 stick (4 ounces) butter
  • 36 slices rye cocktail bread
  • 1/4 cup grainy mustard
  • 1 6 ounce block cheddar cheese, cut into 2-inch squares

Preparation

In a saucepan, heat the olive oil over medium heat. Add the onion, garlic and thyme and cook for 10 minutes. Add the tomatoes, chicken broth and chipotle; lower the heat and simmer for 15 minutes.

Using a blender, puree the soup.

Butter 1 side of each bread slice. Spread the unbuttered side of 18 slices with mustard; top with a slice of cheese and the remaining bread slices, buttered side up. In a nonstick skillet or griddle, grill the sandwiches over medium heat until the cheese is melted, 3 to 4 minutes on each side. Serve with the soup.
