"Classic grilled cheese sandwiches with a kick. Delicious! These are great with a bowl of tomato soup with a little basil added." — Mindy

8 (1 ounce) slices
serrano peppers, seeded and thinly sliced
salt and pepper to taste
This is good. A nice change from the classic. It's best with garden fresh tomatoes, basil & peppers! Nice bite to it, thanks Mindy & Eric!
These were a tasty spin on the original. My husband has requested them a few times since. Prep is impotrant for getting these just right. Slice everything quite thin so that the cheese can melt to keep them together.
serrano peppers are what 4-5 times hotter than the jalapeno? This is just a little too hot for most of my guests and family.
When I made this I had a few different types of peppers on hand. Some habaneros, Anaheim chile,banana peppers as well as just some simple yellow sweet bells. That way people could pick their spice level.
Personaly I like the habernero on this but habaneros are way too hot for most.
I love all the ingredients in this little version of grilled cheese so I knew it would be a winner. I used banana peppers from the jar and they gave the sandwich just the right amount a kick. Thank you!
used monterrey jack cheese and cheddar, forgot the peppers but sprinkled pepper in the middle. Very tasty.
Not bad. I didn't have any serrano peppers so I went with bell. Also couldn't find the basil so I used an Italian spice. Loved the spice but I could do without the peppers. My brother loved it!
Yum! I used a single roma tomato, thinly sliced, and I sliced the serrano pepper lengthwise and just put the halves on the sandwich. A nice change from the everyday grilled cheese.
Great and easy way to spice up an old standby. Thanks for the recipe! Delicious
