  • 4 slices wheat sandwich bread or white sandwich bread
  • 1 cup shredded Monterey jack cheese
  • 1 cup shredded sharp cheddar cheese
  • 3 tablespoons butter
  • 1/2 cup sliced nacho jalapeno peppers (from a jar)
  • 4 tablespoons salsa


  • Depending on the size of skillet or flat grill used, 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 melts, lay each piece of bread on the butter just enough to coat each side of the bread. 
  • Lift the bread slightly with a spatula to check if the bottom side of the bread is starting to turn a golden color.
  • 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 the cheese with jalapenos and salsa. Carefully turn one side of the bread over on to the other one to make a sandwich. 
  • Cover the pan with a lid and continue to cook the sandwich until the outside pieces of bread are lightly browned and the cheese is melted.
  •  Serve right away while warm.
