  • 1
    Heat coals or gas grill for indirect heat. If using charcoal grill, arrange coals around edge of firebox. Mix all ingredients except bread and olives in medium bowl.
  • 2
    Place bread, cut sides down, over center of charcoal grill or over unheated side of gas grill and over medium-low heat. Cover and grill 4 to 5 minutes or until toasted.
  • 3
    Remove bread to cookie sheet; spread toasted sides with cheese mixture. Cover and grill bread, cheese sides up, 5 to 7 minutes or until cheese is hot and melted. Garnish with olives. Cut bread into slices to serve.

Expert Tips

  • If your grill is full, or you don't want to light it up, just broil the bread in the oven instead. Before adding the cheese mixture, broil bread, cut sides up, 2 to 3 minutes or until golden brown. Spread with the cheese mixture, then broil 2 to 3 minutes longer until cheese is hot and melted.
  • Kids love cheesy bread, but if they don't care for olives and green chiles, leave them out and use plain cheese spread.
  • The toasted bread can be topped, covered and refrigerated for up to 2 hours before heating it on the grill.
