Jalapeno Pepper Jelly Grilled Cheese Sandwiches {A Meatless Monday Recipe

Put some spice into Meatless Monday with these jalapeno pepper jelly grilled cheese sandwiches. Made with sweet and spicy jalapeno pepper jelly, smooth and silky cream cheese and extra-sharp cheddar cheese.

I am so in love with the jalapeno jelly that I made this summer. In fact, I made a second batch just a few weeks ago with more of Jose’s peppers. The sweet-spicy combination of the jelly is so good with cheese.

You don’t have to learn how to preserve or can in order to enjoy these sandwiches. You can find pepper jelly in almost any grocery store to enjoy on your next grilled cheese sandwich. Here’s how I made them:
