"Sweet & spicy, this cheesy melt is made easy with a simple raspberry chipotle sauce and the peppery crunch of arugula on crispy grilled King’s Hawaiian bread. This is a quick and simple panini I threw together for the people at King’s Hawaiian Bread for their "Ultimate King's Hawaiian Sandwich Challenge". It won. You can use any bread you like, but the delicate sweetness of their Hawaiian bread pairs perfectly with the spicy-sweet of the raspberry chipotle sauce."
