Jalapeno Popper Sandwich!


This warm spicy cheese sandwich will be one you will want to make again!

If you love Jalapeno Poppers you will enjoy this sandwich!


So I had an ice maker that I purchased from Target that was complete garbage. I didn’t have the receipt so the cashier told me I needed to purchase something in the same department. I was so angry, because I just wanted to use the credit to buy groceries. I mean what could I possible buy in that department and spend a hundred dollars? Well it turned out it was a blessing in disguise. I purchased a new toaster…the kind that takes unusual shapes of bread, and new electric skillet and a PANINI PRESS! My two favorite meals would be a good soup and a sandwich. I have been wanted to buy one for quite sometime. So I quickly searched for a recipe to use my new-found gadget! I thought this sandwich sounded amazing, and it was. I also made up a soup which I prepared with this sandwich. It was sort of a Tortilla Soup…DELICIOUS. I will be posting that recipe next.  Back to this amazing grilled sandwich. I couldn’t believe how much it tasted like a crunchy Jalapeno Popper. The cream cheese combined with the cheddar jack is a perfect combination. I used a sour dough bread, and the addition of the crushed chips between the two layers adds a nice crunch to the sandwich.  The recipe I found actually called for roasting your own jalapeno peppers in the oven. I didn’t have fresh peppers so used the ones I had in a jar. They were fine. I will try making it with the fresh ones again.  Helpful tip, when using a panini press do not press down on the sandwich, simply let the top rest on the bread. Toast until golden brown!  Enjoy



2 slices of sour dough bread

cream cheese ( I used the spreadable kind.)

cheddar jack cheese

japaleno peppers

crushed tortilla chips



Butter the outsides of both pieces of bread. Spread with cream cheese.  Press crushed tortilla chips into the side. Add a layer of jalapeno peppers and the cheddar jack cheese.  Toast in a panini, or toast the way you would a grilled cheese on a griddle.
