Nacho Jalapeno and Salsa Grilled Cheese

There’s no way around it, a grilled cheese sandwich is simple goodness.

Although they’re super tasty as is with just cheese, a grilled cheese sandwich can be jazzed up by adding more ingredients.

When I’m staring in the fridge because I’m hungry for something that I just can’t put my finger on, the sight of cheese reminds me that I can have a grilled cheese sandwich.

And once I have grilled cheese sandwiches on the brain, there’s no turning back.  I must have one.

So here’s a grilled cheese idea, nacho style.

The heat of the jalapenos and salsa is downright delish with the melted cheese and toasted bread.

This is a sandwich worthy of having for breakfast, lunch or dinner.

Here are some other delicious grilled cheese sandwiches:

Brown Butter Grilled Cheese (made with onion rings inside the sandwich),
Grilled Cheese and Chili Sandwich, and
Three Cheese and Orange Zest Grilled Cheese (grilled on the BBQ).

Thank you so much for stopping by!

Let’s check out the ingredients.

Wheat or white sandwich bread, Jack cheese, sharp cheddar cheese, salsa, nacho style jalapenos from a jar, and butter.

Here’s how to make it.

Depending on the size of your skillet or flat grill, one sandwich may need to be made at a time.

Heat a skillet on medium heat and add butter (add half of the butter if making one sandwich at a time).

As the butter is melting,

lay each piece of bread on top of it just enough to coat each side of the bread with the butter.

Lift the bread slightly with a spatula to take a peek at how fast the bottom side of the bread is browning.

As soon as the bottom sides of the bread are a golden color,

turn the bread over and add the cheese on top.

Then top with jalapenos and salsa.

Carefully turn one side of the bread over on to the other one to make a sandwich.

Put a lid over the pan and continue to cook the sandwich until the outside pieces of bread are lightly browned and the cheese is melted.

  1. Love this grilled cheese. It amps up the flavour plus it just looks smashing. I must try this.

  2. Ok. You had me at the picture “add the jalapenos and salsa”! I’m sold and ready to go home and make this. (Yes, I’m at the office drooling!).

    We have a new party at Tumbleweed Contessa. (What’d You Do This Weekend?) I’d love it if you would bring this over. It would be a hit! Grab a button and look around at what everyone did this past weekend.

    Thanks for sharing. You made my day.
