Jalapeño Popper Grilled Cheese Sandwiches
Makes 4 sandwiches
ounces cream cheese, softened
tablespoons sour cream
tablespoons seeded and chopped jalapeños (about 2 small jalapeños), or to taste
ciabatta sandwich rolls
teaspoons butter, softened
tortilla chips, crushed
cup shredded Colby-Monterey Jack cheese, divided
- Combine the cream cheese, sour cream, and chopped jalapeños in a small bowl. Set aside. Preheat skillet over medium heat.
- Slice each roll in half horizontally, then slice the rounded tops off the ciabatta rolls to make a flat top half. Spread 1 teaspoon butter on the doughy cut side of the bottom bun and 1 teaspoon butter on the now flattened top bun. Place 1/4 of the cream cheese mixture, 1/4 of the crushed chips, and 1/4 of the shredded cheese on the non-buttered side of the bottom bun. Place the top half of the bun on the sandwich and place the sandwich on the hot skillet. Repeat with the other sandwiches.
- Grill until lightly browned and flip over, about 3 to 5 minutes; continue grilling until cheese is melted and the second side is golden brown.
