Make the guacamole first by mixing the avocado, cherry tomatoes, lime or lemon juice, salt and pepper, and Tabasco sauce. You can either mix it all together in a food processor or just smash it all together in a bowl with a fork. I like leaving the guacamole chunkier for these sandwiches. There should be enough for two or three sandwiches.
Butter one side of the bread slices. I often use normal grocery store sliced bread, but this time I bought a loaf of crusty bread and it was so much tastier. Layer the guacamole and cheese on the bread with the butter side out, and then grill away. We have a George Foreman grill that I used for the first time making grilled cheese sandwiches, rather than grilling them in a pan like I usually do, and they came out so much crispier and lighter. I'll never go back to using pans again!
I like this version even better my than my bruschetta grilled cheese sandwiches (though those are tasty too). The Tabasco adds a nice zing to the richness of the guacamole and the mellow cheese. Yum!
