FROM MY KITCHEN | Tex Mex Chicken Melt Sandwiches (repost)

I haven't made this sandwich in a long time and my son has been bugging me to make these every chance he got!  I finally broke down and made them.

They are quick, easy and yummy . . .

*one package sub or hoagie rolls (package of 6, each roll will make 2 sandwiches)
*1/4 to 1/2 cups chopped onions 
*1/4 to 1/2 cups chopped green pepper
(the amount of onion and green pepper will depend on how strong you want the flavor to be)
*1/2 cup shredded cheddar or Mexican Cheese
*1 12.5oz can of chunk white chicken(drained and flaked)
*1/4 cup mayo
*1 teaspoon chili powder or 11/2 teaspoons (it can be overpowering if you put too much in)
*1 - 2 teaspoons red pepper flakes
*1 clove pressed garlic
*2 tomatoes sliced
*1/2 cup shredded cheddar or mexican cheese for topping

**Preheat oven to 375 degrees**

1. In a bowl combine: onion, green peppers, 1/2 cup cheese, chili powder, red pepper flakes, garlic, mayo and chicken. Make sure all ingredients are combined well.

2. Open sub rolls and place on foil lined cookie sheet.(the above recipe will yield about 2 to 4 sandwiches) on each slice of roll spread a good amount of chicken mixture.

3. On top of chicken mixture add slices of tomatoes, then top with cheese.

4. Place in oven on center rack and cook 15 to 18 minutes. Remove from oven and serve with fries or you favorite chips.

While eating these we were discussing what else would be good on them;
swiss cheese
and so on. The possibilities are endless.

If you try them I hope you enjoy.
