  1. In a bowl, combine cream cheese, garlic powder, green onions, and salt and pepper.
  2. Roast jalapeño in a skillet until the skin is blistered. Remove from the pan and place in a paper bag. After 5 minutes, peel off the skin. Slice in half and remove the seeds.
  3. Spread cream cheese mixture on 2 slices of bread. Place shredded cheese and jalapeños on top. Place the other bread slices to close the sandwiches.
