Chili Cheese Toast Recipe | How to Make Chili Cheese Toast

One of Devansh’s best buddies in school gets chili cheese toast in his tiffin quite often and Devansh simply loves it. I used to make it earlier but had not made it for quite a few years now. So when Devansh asked me to make it for him, I thought I will look up some recipes on the net. The recipes I found used too little veggies (bell peppers), and some none at all—just cheese and chilies. So I decided to use more of bell peppers and less (well relatively :)) cheese. I did remember I used to add mustard powder, it just adds that nice zing.

Less spicy chili cheese toast made using light green chili or none at all, just the bell peppers, can be eaten by kids or even toddlers. Use dark green chilies for grownups and you’ll have them asking for more. I know, I am speaking from experience. 🙂 Eat it like an appetizer before a meal, an evening snack, or give it in your child’s tiffin. This recipe is yummy and very versatile. Speaking of toasted recipes, Devansh and I also like the non-sweetened, Indian version of French toast. I have shared that recipe earlier. Now, here’s an easy stove top recipe.

Chili Cheese Toast Recipe
Instructions
  1. Cut the edges off bread slices and then cut each slice in 2 pieces.
  2. Heat a non-stick pan, toast the bread pieces on it from one side. When the pieces are toasted take them off the pan.
  3. Heat another non-stick pan, and add 2 tbsp butter.
  4. Add chopped onion and saute for half a minute.
  5. Add chopped bell peppers and green chili, and saute for no more than a minute. (The vegetables should get tender but not start to release moisture.)
  6. Transfer the sauteed vegetables to a bowl, and add salt and mustard powder.
  7. Add fresh cream and mix well.
  8. Butter the toasted side of a bread piece and spread the sauteed vegetables on top.
  9. Add grated cheese on top the vegetables.
  10. Cover and cook on low flame till cheese melts.
  11. Serve hot. (You can sprinkle some chili flakes on top.)
Recipe Notes
  • Fresh cream is used to bind the veggies together. If you eat eggs, you can use egg white instead of cream.
  • If you are making this chilli cheese toast for kids, use light colored, non-spicy green chilies. Also, deseed the chilies before chopping.
