Jalapeno Popper Grilled Cheese

The genius idea of combining the goodness of jalapeno poppers and grilled cheese to make a more adult sophisticated grilled cheese comes from Closet Cooking which I found via Becky Bakes. The original recipe, however, is a bit complicated, roasting fresh jalapenos before even beginning with the sandwich. I wanted to go for something simplier to compile, and replaced the jalapenos with canned pickled jalapenos. The slight vinegar taste adds wonderfully to the sandwich. I also added pepper jack cheese, which melds the flavors wonderfully.
2 pickled jalapeno peppers, cut in half lengthwise and seeded
2 slices bread
1 tablespoon butter, room temperature
1 tablespoon cream cheese, room temperature
1 slice cheddar cheese
1 slice pepper jack cheese
These are made just like regular grilled cheese with the addition of the cream cheese, which is spread on one side and topped with jalapeno peppers before being put together. Grill until golden brown and the cheese has melted, about 2-3 minutes per side.
