Jalapeño Popper Grilled Cheese Sandwiches

Serves Makes 4 sandwiches     adjust servings


  • 4 ounces cream cheese, softened
  • 2 tablespoons sour cream
  • 4 tablespoons seeded and chopped jalapeños (about 2 small jalapeños), or to taste
  • 4 ciabatta sandwich rolls
  • 8 teaspoons butter, softened
  • 16 tortilla chips, crushed
  • 1 cup shredded Colby-Monterey Jack cheese, divided


  1. Combine the cream cheese, sour cream, and chopped jalapeños in a small bowl. Set aside. Preheat skillet over medium heat.
  2. 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.
  3. 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.
