  • 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


  • 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.
