Recipe Overview

A grilled cheese version of one of my favorite bar snacks, the jalapeño popper. This grilled cheese is a fun take on that snack, and would be perfect served alongside tortilla soup or chili.

Ingredients List


In a small bowl combine cream cheese, green onions, and jalapeños. Season with salt and pepper. Set aside.

Preheat skillet to medium heat. Arrange bread on a cutting board, and spread cream cheese mixture on both pieces of bread. Add a slice of Monterey Jack and a slice of cheddar. Close the sandwich and lightly butter one side. Place the buttered side down in a skillet. Let the cheese melt, about 2 minutes. Reduce heat if needed. Butter the top and flip sandwich over. Cook second side about 2 minutes, or until cheese is melted and bread is brown and toasted.
