Chicken, Poblano and Avocado Panini

So this recipe was based of Sunset's Chicken, Bacon, and Blue-Cheese Sandwiches. Except I don't like Blue-Cheese, or jarred red peppers, and it seemed weird with bacon.

So we made our own. It was really good. I would have again.

A truly satisfying flavor trio.
