Jalapeño Popper Grilled Cheese Sandwich

I honestly can't even put into words how in love I am with this here sandwich. It is absolutely amazing...heaven on sourdough breadAs I was browsing for ways to make my Bacon Wrapped Jalapeño Poppers, I found this recipe on Closet Cooking and instantly knew that I had to try it.


2 tablespoons cream cheese, room temp
1 tablespoon of butter or margarine, room temp
2 slices of sourdough bread (or your bread of choice)
1 - 2 jalapeño peppers, cut in half lengthwise and seeded
1/2 cup shredded cheddar & jack cheese (I used fat free cheddar)


* Grill or broil the peppers, face down for about 10-12 minutes or until the skin is blackened
* Place the peppers in a sealed zip lock bag and let them cool 15 minutes
* Remove peppers from the bag and peel off the skin (should come off very easily)
* Lightly toast your bread 
* Butter the outside and cream cheese the inside of each slice
* Layer your sandwich as follows: toast - cheddar - jalapeños - cheddar - toast
* Heat a non-stick pan over medium heat
* Add sandwich & cook 3-4 minutes per side or until cheese is melted & toast is golden brown

Enjoy now and thank me later ;-)
