Jalapeno Popper Grilled Cheese Sandwich

I made this sandwich for Don and he really liked it. It wasn't hard to roast the jalapenos. Make SURE to wear gloves while taking the seeds out of the peppers---ask me how I know this!
Jalapeno Popper Grilled Cheese Sandwich
 Closet Cooking

Servings: makes 1 sandwich
2 jalapeno peppers, cut in half lengthwise and seeded
2 slices sour dough bread
1 tablespoon butter, room temperature
1 tablespoon cream cheese, room temperature
1/4 cup jack and cheddar cheese, shredded
1 tablespoon tortilla chips, crumbled

Place the peppers on a baking sheet with the cut side facing down.

Place the baking sheet on the top shelf in the oven and broil until the outer layer of the skin has blackened, about 8-14 minutes.

Place the peppers in a zip-lock bag or other sealable container, seal and let them cool until you can handle them, about 20 minutes.

Remove the skins from the peppers. The skins should easily "pinch" off.

 Assemble sandwich(buttered bread, cream cheese, jalapenos, pepper jack cheese, crushed tortilla chips and buttered bread) and grill until golden brown and the cheese has melted, about 2-3 minutes per side.
