Treat yourself to a fully loaded Mexican Chopped Cheese with molten, melty pepper jack, crispy beef, crunchy lettuce, and bright pico de gallo. With just a handful of ingredients and a simple process, you won’t mind heating up the griddle for this addictive sandwich.

  • Total Time: 15 minutes
  • Yield: About 3-4 1x


  • 3 hoagie rolls
  • 2 tablespoons softened butter
  • 1/4 cup mayonnaise
  • 1 pound ground beef, 80/20 preferred
  • 1 teaspoon Kosher salt, more as needed
  • 1 tablespoon chili powder
  • 3 tablespoons chopped chipotles in adobo
  • 6 slices of pepper jack cheese
  • 1 cup chopped lettuce
  • 1 cup Pico De Gallo


  1. Fill the sandwich with toppings. Add the shredded lettuce and pico de gallo to the sandwich and close it up. You may roll the sandwich in parchment paper to keep it warm, which also helps to keep the toppings together.


  • When forming your chopped beef on the griddle it helps to use the hoagie bun as a guide for length. If the meat mixture is too large it will be a mess while transferring it.
  • Use a slotted spoon when serving up the pico de gallo. This will prevent the excess liquid from making your sandwich a little soggy.
