  • 4 slices bread
  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 4 slices cheddar cheese
  • 1 jalapeño pepper roughly chopped
  • 1 vine ripened tomato sliced
  • 1/4 onion roughly chopped


  • Butter one side of each piece of bread.
  • Heat a skillet or pan over low heat, then lay two of the bread slices (butter side down) into the pan. On each bread slice, place 2 slices of cheddar cheese and 2 tomato slices, then top with jalapeño and onion. 
  • Place the two other bread slices on top of the sandwiches, butter side up. 
  • Continue to grill the sandwich until the bottom side is a golden brown, then flip the sandwich. Continue to grill until the other side is a golden brown as well. 
  • Remove the sandwiches from the grill, cut in half, and serve.


Want it spicier? Try serrano peppers instead of jalapeños. Serranos are typically double the spiciness, so approach with care.
