Mexican Bruschetta

Mexican Bruschetta

Introduction

This recipe comes courtesy of Sam the Cooking Guy from FitTV. This is an excellent quick summer meal or great for entertaining friends. I especially recommend this with garden fresh tomatoes. I served this with a chipotle marinated chicken skewer and my colorful summer fruit salad. This recipe comes courtesy of Sam the Cooking Guy from FitTV.

Ingredients

    1 long sour dough baguette (I used Trader Joe's 7 Grain Baguette)
    1 1/2 pounds tomatoes, seeded and diced pretty small (I highly recommend plum or roma tomatoes)
    2 tablespoons olive oil
    1 bunch fresh cilantro, chopped fine
    6 cloves garlic, minced
    1/2 - 1 tablespoon red pepper flakes (use less if you don't like spicy food, more if you do)
    3/4 cup Monterey Jack cheese, shredded

Directions

Pre-heat broiler. Slice baguette down the middle lengthwise and brown cut side up ever-so-slightly under the broiler. Mix remaining ingredients in a medium mixing bowl. Distribute evenly over cut side of the sliced bread. Place under broiler until the whole thing begins to brown.
Remove and slice into serving pieces. Serves 6.
