It’s month end, Vacation Bible School Week and I am sick… sinuses are whackado.  So, I am sharing a repost from several months ago featuring my Jalapeno Popper Grilled Cheese Sandwiches.

We had these jalapeno popper grilled cheese sandwiches Sunday for lunch and I couldn’t wait to share the recipe!  Well, that was after my eyes stopped tearing up from the pepper capsaicin.  When they tell you to use gloves, they really mean it.  I have been tossing around making something with these fresh jalapenos they had at our grocery store.  I wanted to make jalapeno poppers, but didn’t want to have to go to all the trouble for just a few poppers.  This, my friends, is the next best thing.  Enjoy!

Jalapeno Popper Grilled Cheese Sandwiches

Prep Time5 mins
Cook Time10 mins
Total Time15 mins

Ingredients

  • 4 fresh jalapeno peppers
  • 8 slices bread
  • 8 slices low fat American cheese
  • 8 ounces softened low fat cream cheese
  • 4 Tablespoons butter
  • 2 Tablespoons olive oil
  • GLOVES! Trust me.

Instructions

  • Wearing gloves, wash and dry peppers. Cut both ends off each pepper, then slice in half lengthwise.
  • With your knife flat against the inside of the pepper, scrape the seeds and ribs out. Flatten pepper with your hand against cutting board.
  • In a medium skillet, heat olive oil for 2-3 minutes. Place peppers inside down on the skillet, pressing down with spatula.
  • Cook peppers for 2-3 minutes; flip and cook the outside for 2-3 minutes. Remove from skillet to plate and set aside.
  • Spread 1/2 Tablespoon of butter on each slice of bread. On the opposite side of each slice of bread, spread 1 ounce of cream cheese to edges. (You will have 8 slices with butter on one side and cream cheese on the other side.)
  • Layer, in skillet, 1 slice bread with butter down, 1 slice cheese, 2 jalapeno halves, 1 slice cheese, then the top piece of bread with the butter side up/cream cheese inside.
  • Cook over medium-low heat until toasted, then flip sandwich over with spatula and continue to cook until the second side is toasted.
  • Remove from skillet and repeat with remaining two sandwiches.

Notes

Note: When preparing fresh jalapenos, always wear gloves and avoid touching your hands to your face, lips, or eyes.
