Free Recipe Wednesday #1 (Jalapeno Popper Grilled Cheese Sandwich)

Welcome everyone to a new edition of Free Recipe Wednesday. As some of you may have noticed, I didn't post a recipe last Wednesday. I apologize for that and to make up for it I'm going to post 2 free recipes today. Both recipes today are an adult twist on the classic grilled cheese sandwich that most, if not all of us grew up eating. When I saw this first sandwich, the Jalapeno Popper Grill Cheese Sandwich, I got real happy! I'm a huge fan of grilled cheese sandwiches anyway and jalapeno poppers are one of my most favorite deep fried foods so obviously this combination sounded amazing to me. Just look at that picture and try to tell me that doesn't look delicious. I have yet to try it but when I do I'll be sure to post back with my review. Hopefully you all will enjoy this one as well. Please feel free to post comments, opinions, etc below.

Jalapeno Popper Grilled Cheese Sandwich

  • 2 Jalapeno Peppers, cut in half lengthwise and seeded
  • 2 slices Sourdough Bread
  • 1 tablespoon Butter, room temperature
  • 2 tablespoons Cream Cheese, room temperature
  • 1/2 cup Jack and Cheddar Cheese, shredded
  • 1 tablespoon Tortilla Chips, crumbled

1. Place the peppers on a baking sheet with the cut side facing down.
2. Place the baking sheet on the top shelf in the oven and broil until the outer layer of the skin has blackened, about 8-14 minutes.
3. Place the peppers in a zip-lock bag or other sealable container, seal and let them cool until you can handle them, about 20 minutes.
Remove the skins from the peppers. The skins should easily come off.
4. Lightly butter the outside of each slice of bread and spread the cream cheese on the inside. Sprinkle half of the cheese on the cream cheese of one slice of bread, top with the jalapenos, crumbled tortilla chips, the remaining cheese and finally the other slice of bread.
5. Heat a non-stick pan over medium heat.
6. Add the sandwich and grill until golden brown and the cheese has melted, about 2-4 minutes per side.
