  2. On each cream cheese-topped bread slice, layer 1/4 cup jalapeños and 2 slices Cheddar cheese. Top with remaining bread slices, buttered side up.
  3. Heat large cast-iron or nonstick skillet over medium heat. Add sandwiches; cook about 5 to 7 minutes, turning once, until cheese is melted and bread is golden brown and crisp. To serve, cut each sandwich in half.
