Bacon wrapped Jalapeño's are also a favorite appetizer of our families, so I took that idea and made it into a sandwich.
This was a clear winner and will go into our grilled cheese rotation.
Jalapeño Popper Grilled Cheese. All the flavors of a traditional jalapeño popper put between 2 pieces of bread.
First I cooked up some homemade bacon bits. Another reason I keep these bacon bits in the refrigerator. They are great to have on hand for quick add in's to recipes.
Mix it all together.
Put it on the bread. I used regular wheat bread but use whatever is your favorite.
Even a tortilla would be great.
Grill it up and enjoy. Yum! Spicy cheesy goodness.
Jalapeño Popper Grilled Cheese
4 oz cream cheese, softened ( I use whipped)
8 oz shredded sharp cheddar cheese ( freshly shredded melts the best)
6 oz bacon bits
2-3 fresh jalepeno, chopped
Stir everything together. It spreads easily if the mixture is at room temperature. Put between any bread or tortilla and toast it up.
