{Recipe} Jalapeno Popper Grilled Cheese

I LOVE making new recipes.  I hate when they don't work out.  This one did work out and I'm SO glad that I decided to try it! I call it the Adult Grilled Cheese. It was so easy to make - literally I think it took a total of 20 minutes...which is perfect because that was the estimated time on the original recipe. 
  • Ingredients
  • 2 ounces cream cheese, softened
  • 1 tablespoon sour cream
  • 10 pickled jalapeno pepper slices, or to taste - chopped
  • 2 ciabatta sandwich rolls
  • 4 tsps butter (I didn't measure this out lol)
  • 1/2 cup shredded Colby-Monterey Jack cheese
  • 1 chicken Breast


  1. Cut chicken into small pieces.  cook through on medium heat in pan on the stove. 
  2. Combine the cream cheese, sour cream, and pickled jalapeno in a small bowl. Set aside.
  3. Slice each roll in half horizontally, then slice the rounded tops off the ciabatta rolls to make a flat top half. 
  4. Spread 1 teaspoon butter on the bottom bun and 1 teaspoon butter on the now flattened top bun.
  5.  Place half of the cream cheese mixture on the non-buttered side of the bottom bun. Put the cut up chicken pieces on the top of the cream cheese mixture.  Add half the shredded cheese on top of the chicken.  Place the top half of the bun on the sandwich and place the sandwich on the hot skillet. Repeat with the second sandwich.
  6. 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.

This was so delicious! I can't wait to eat it again! Seriously - there isn't anything we would change. Actually I did deviate from the original recipe - I added the chicken.  The original recipe can be found here.
While cooking, I explained to The Husband how much I enjoy new recipes. He agreed and we decided on Monday night when we tried this recipe, that we are going to attempt new recipes more often.  AND it is even better when we cook together!

OH AND P.S. - I am really bad about taking pictures of my food because I am so excited to try it - I have a very hard time remembering to actually take a picture of the food we make!! 

have you tried any new recipes lately??
