Jalapeno Popper Grilled Cheese Sandwich

What's better than a grilled cheese sandwich? Of course it involves adding jalapenos!

2 Jalapeno Peppers
2 Slices Sourdough Bread
1 Tablespoon Butter
2 Tablespoons Cream Cheese
1/2 Cup Jack and Cheddar Cheese, shredded
1 Tablespoon Tortilla Chips, crumbled

Cut and seed Jalapeno Peppers in half, lengthwise.

Place the peppers on a baking sheet with the cut side facing down. Place the baking sheet on the top shelf in the oven and broil until the outer layer of the skin is blackened, about 10-12 minutes. 
Place the peppers in a zip-lock bag. Let them cool until you can handle them, about 15 minutes. 
Remove the skins from the peppers.  The skins should easily come off.

Butter the outside of each slice of bread, and spread the cream cheese on the inside.  Sprinkle half of the shredded cheese followed with the jalapenos and crumbled tortilla chips.

Top with the remainder of the cheese.

After topping with the other slice of bread, grill in a non-stick pan over medium heat until the sandwich is golden brown and the cheese has melted, about 2-4 minutes per side.
