Recipe by Sharon123

A nice Mexican twist to the beloved grilled cheese sandwich.If you can't get the jalapeno cheese bread, try adding a little chopped chipotle pepper to the butter! Or add some sliced pickled jalapeno on top of the cheese on the bread. From

AY CARUMBA......this was FANTASTICO ..!!
A couple of minor jalapeno cheese bread, so used wholegrain - and as I can't get pepper jack cheese here (sob) I always use Aussie Jack or Colby mixed with some chilli flakes....
A totally AWESOME sandwich, that I demolished with absolute gleeful greediness!!
What a find- cheers Sharon !! Made with total pleasure for PRMR.
