Tasty Tuesday: Jalapeno Grilled Cheese


Last week I had some jalapenos I need to use and remembered a recipe I had pinned for a jalapeno grilled cheese sandwich.  This ended up being one of my husband's new favorite things--he loved it and so did I!  It was easy and delicious, you should try it.

For the record I know I'm a terrible food photographer.

Here's the original recipe...

And here's my adaptation:)

3 jalapeno peppers
1 Tbsp chive and onion cream cheese
thinly sliced tomatoes
sliced extra sharp white cheddar (or whatever cheese you like)
sliced American cheese
Bread (I used white, Mr. C hates wheat bread)

Roast the jalapenos.  I did mine on the grill but you can use your stove element too.  When they are nicely charred on all sides, remove and put in a bowl covered in saran wrap or throw them in a ziplock bag.  Wait a few minutes, peel the skins off, and remove the seeds and spines.

Spread cream cheese on one slice of bread and lay out the jalapenos.  Top with a slice of cheddar, then tomatoes, then a slice of American.  Butter the outside of the bread and cook in a pan on medium until golden.  Flip carefully.  Slice it (diagonally if you're like me) and eat it:) It's delicious!
