Pin It and Do It: Jalapeno Popper Grilled Cheese

I am so happy Trish is hosting round 2 of her Pin It and Do It Challenge. I have pinned so many things, recipes, crafts, gift ideas, and her challenge is a good reminder to actually give them a try.

We do a garden every year, with the usual things, tomatoes, peppers, green beans, zucchini, etc., and this year we added a few jalapeno pepper plants. They’re actually in pots, but that’s beside the point. So now we have a bunch of jalapenos and I finally got around to using some the other day in jalapeno popper grilled cheese sandwiches, a recipe I pinned about a month ago.

This picture is from Jo Cooks, because I forgot to take a photo. Mine didn’t look this nice anyway, but they were pretty good. Basically it’s a grilled cheese made with shredded cheddar and marscapone cheese on country white bread with some sliced jalapenos in the middle. I actually used cream cheese instead of the marscapone because it was like half the price and it is just grilled cheese. Really yummy, although next time I’ll add a few more pepper slices, give it a little more of a kick. I don’t know why I never thought of adding cream cheese to a grilled cheese before, really a good idea. David and I both liked them, but Amber wouldn’t even try them. She had a provolone grilled cheese, her favorite, even if she would have preferred it to have pepperoni on it too.

Of course, I served it with tomato soup.

You can find my pin here and the recipe at Jo Cooks.

  1. I’m getting ready to post my first post for this challenge. It’s nice to have a little kick in the pants, right?
    This looks very yummy. I love cream cheese and have never thought about putting them on grilled cheese either. I’ll try to remember for next time.

  2. I would have never thought to add cream cheese either but it sounds really good. Especially with the jalapenos! Lately I’ve been adding just a bit of turkey to my grilled cheese. Thanks for joining the challenge Carol!
