Ingredients

3 large tomatoes (about 8 oz. each) or a variety of smaller tomatoes (about 1-1/2 pounds total)
4 ounces Monterey Jack cheese with jalapeño peppers or Monterey Jack cheese, shredded (1-1/2 cups)
Small green, yellow, purple, or red sweet pepper, finely chopped (about 1/2 cup)
1/4 cup toasted sliced almonds


In the Oven: Preheat oven to 350° F. Cut each tomato into 4 slices, about 1/2 inch thick. If using smaller tomatoes, halve each one. For each of 4 servings, arrange 3 tomato slices, overlapping slightly, in a foil-lined, 15x10x1-inch baking pan. (Or, if using smaller tomatoes, arrange in a single layer in a foil-lined,15x10x1-inch baking pan.)


Sprinkle with shredded cheese, finely chopped pepper, and toasted almonds. Bake about 15 minutes or until cheese is bubbly. Carefully lift with large metal spatula to individual plates, allowing excess juices to drain off.


On the Grill: To prepare on a grill, arrange ingredients as above in a shallow disposable foil pan. In a grill with a cover arrange medium-hot coals around the edge of the grill; test for medium heat above the center of the grill. Place the pan with the tomatoes in the center of the grill rack. Grill, covered, for 12 to 15 minutes or until cheese is bubbly
