Jalapeno Popper Grilled Cheese

I LOVE Jalapeno poppers so when I saw this inspired recipe for grilled cheese I had to make it. This sandwich is divine!! I couldn't get enough of it. It was the perfect lunch that I will be making over and over.

Jalapeno Popper Grilled Cheese

1 jalapeno pepper-- cut in half lengthwise and seeded
2 slices sourdough bread
1 Tbsp. light butter
1 Tbsp. light cream cheese
1/4 cup shredded cheese

Place the pepper on a baking sheet with the cut side down. Broil for 9-10 minutes until the peppers are blackened. Place in a ziplock bag and seal. Let cool until you can handle them. (about 20 minutes) Remove the skins from the peppers. (should pinch off easily). Spread butter on the outsides of each slice of bread. Spread cream cheese on inside of one slice. Add cheese and peppers. Close sandwich and grill for 2-3 minutes on both sides.

1 sandwich = 10 points (points plus)
