Better than regular grilled cheese...not sure how Mexican this is besides the jalapeno jack, but this tastes great! I made mine in the panini maker, on a ciabatta roll. Several hours later I saw my husband walking around with a sandwich. He never cooks so I asked where he got it and he said "A Mexican Grilled Cheese...I saw the recipe on the counter and made it" That's how easy this is!
