    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!  -  25 Sep 2002  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)


    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.  -  28 Jul 2006  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)


    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!  -  28 Jul 2006  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
