Yield 8 servings


  • 1 loaf French bread cut into 3/4" thick slices
  • ½ cup olives chopped
  • ½ teaspoon chili powder
  • ½ teaspoon ground cumin
  • ¼ teaspoon salt
  • 1/3 cup lite mayonnaise
  • 1/3 cup nonfat sour cream
  • 1/3 cup green onions chopped
  • 1 pound sliced turkey
  • 2 medium tomatoes thinly sliced
  • 2 ripe avocados sliced
  • ¾ cup cheddar cheese shredded
  • ¾ cup pepper jack or Monterey Jack cheese shredded


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  2. In a bowl, combine olives, chili powder, cumin, and salt; set aside 2 Tablespoons of this mixture. Add the mayonnaise, sour cream, and green onions to the remaining olive mixture.
  3. Place bread on an ungreased baking sheet and spread 1 Tablespoon of the mayonnaise mixture on each slice. Top with slices of turkey and tomatoes. Spread with another Tablespoon of mayonnaise mixture (I didn't add this because I didn't think it needed it). Top with avocados and cheeses. Sprinkle with the reserved 2 Tablespoons of olive mixture. Bake @ 350 for 15 min. Makes 8-10 servings.
