  1. 3 chorizo sausages (6 ounces), thinly sliced on the diagonal
  2. 2 tablespoons unsalted butter, softened
  3. 8 slices of sourdough bread, cut from a pullman loaf
  4. 6 ounces Pepper Jack cheese, thinly sliced
  5. 2 tablespoons drained and sliced pickled jalapeños

  1. In a large skillet, cook the sliced chorizo over moderately high heat, stirring occasionally, until lightly browned, about 3 minutes. Drain the chorizo on paper towels and wipe out the skillet.
