Jalapeño Grilled Cheese

Amidst my sick weekend I did what any other social media type would do when confined to my bed…pinned my face off on Pinterest {you can follow me here}. I mostly browsing fashion, food and home decor and was so excited when I scrolled past this beautiful image of grilled cheese. When I clicked through I saw that it was a Jalapeño Popper version of the classic and I figured it was worth a try to make because aside from rest and fluids you can help relieve congestion with spicy foods. It was not the most spicy jalapeño dish I have ever made, but it was delicious and I have included the way I made the recipe below. Enjoy!


  • 4 jalapeños
  • 4 oz of plain cream cheese, softened
  • 4 slices of sourdough bread
  • 8 slices of sharp cheddar cheese
  • fresh ground black pepper
  • cayenne pepper
  • butter


  1. Preheat oven to broil setting and once warm place jalapeños directly on rack to char. Make sure to rotate every few minutes so they become blackened on all sides as seen in {this} post.
  2. Once charred, remove and place in a covered boil for 10 minutes.
  3. After the 10 minutes you can remove the top and the insides should come out easily. Discard seeds and top and then slice peppers in half.
  4. Take one jalapeño and finely chop and mix with cream cheese, black pepper, cayenne pepper to make paste.
  5. Coat inside of each piece of break with mixture and then add cheese and the halved peppers.
  6. Butter the outsides of the bread and cook on warm skillet.
  7. Once cooked to your liking remove from heat and enjoy!
