Southwest flair

These south-of-the-border turkey melts, from the Lion House recipes, are delicious, fun and easy. They would be great for dinner, appetizers, parties, whatever. We highly recommend them!


French bread, cut into 3/4-inch slices
1/2 c. chopped olives
1/2 tsp. chili powder
1/2 tsp. ground cumin
1/4 tsp. salt
1/3 c. mayo or Miracle Whip
1/3 c. sour cream
1/3 c. chopped green onions
Sliced deli turkey
2 medium tomatoes, sliced
2 ripe avocados, sliced
1 1/2 c. shredded cheese, any kind or combo (cheddar, pepper jack, Monterey jack)

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Combine olives, chili powder, cumin and salt; set aside 2 tablespoons of this mixture. To the remaining mixture, add mayo, sour cream and green onions.

Spread a generous amount of mayo mixture on each slice of bread. Top with turkey, tomatoes, avocados and cheese. Sprinkle reserved olives on top for looks. Bake on cookie sheet for about 15 minutes.
