4    thin slices  sourdough bread
2    small  ripe avocados, seeded, peeled, and cut up
1/2   teaspoon   ground cumin
1      large tomato, sliced
4      slices reduced-fat Monterey Jack cheese*
1 - 2    tablespoons   red or green jalapeno jelly
1 - 2    teaspoons   lime juice
2    cups   arugula
Preheat broiler. Place bread slices on the unheated rack of a broiler pan. Broil about 5 inches from the heat about 2 minutes or until bread is lightly toasted, turning once halfway through broiling. Remove from broiler.
Meanwhile, in a medium bowl combine avocados and cumin. Coarsely mash with a fork or potato masher (mixture should still be chunky). Spread avocado mixture on toasted bread slices. Top with tomato and cheese slices; set aside.
In a medium microwave-safe bowl microwave jelly on 100 percent power (high) for 20 to 30 seconds or until melted and slightly bubbly. Stir in lime juice; cool. Add arugula to jelly mixture; toss to coat.
Return sandwiches to broiler. Broil for 2 to 3 minutes more or until cheese is melted. To serve, top sandwiches with arugula mixture.
If you can't find reduced-fat Monterey jack cheese slices, then slice 3- to 4-oz from a block of reduced-fat Monterey jack cheese and divide evenly among sandwiches. Or replace the reduced-fat Monterey Jack cheese slices with reduced-fat slices of cheddar cheese.
