Mexican Grilled Cheese Sandwich

Recipe by Sandi From CA
READY IN: 15mins


  • 4
    slices French bread
  • 2
    slices swiss cheese
  • 12
    cup shredded cheddar cheese
  • 2
    teaspoons roasted jalapenos, minced
  • 1 12
    tablespoons butter, softened
  • 1
    teaspoon taco seasoning


  • In a small bowl, combine taco seasoning with the butter until fully mixed.
  • Thinly coat 1 side of each bread slice with butter mixture.
  • Heat skillet to medium. When hot, lay down 2 of the four slices of bread, buttered side down.
  • On each slice in the skillet, layer 1 slice of Swiss cheese, 1 teaspoon of the minced roasted jalapenos and 1/2 of the cheddar. Top each sandwich with the remaining bread slices, buttered side UP. (I actually put a little bit more of the jalapeno pieces into the butter mixture before spreading it.).
  • Cover skillet and turn pan to medium low. Cook for 5 minutes.
  • Uncover and flip when sandwiches have reached desired brownness. Raise heat to medium or medium-high and continue cooking until other side is to your preferred brownness.
  • Goes perfectly with a good bowl of soup!
