Assemble sandwiches by starting with one slice of cheese on each of 4 pieces of bread. Top with one-fourth of chile, bacon, tomatoes and cilantro. Top with remaining cheese and the second slice of bread. Lightly spread outsides of sandwiches with butter.

Grill in a nonstick skillet or griddle over medium heat until golden brown, about 3 minutes each side.

Note: Havarti cheese with jalapeno may be used as an alternative. Canned whole green chiles may be substituted, if necessary.
