Tex-Mex Philly Cheese Steak Sandwiches

Tex-Mex Philly Cheese Steak SandwichI have to be complete honest with you – I am totally addicted to this sandwich. I’ve been doing my best to cut back on eating bread, but that attempt came to a screeching halt when we made these fantastic Tex-Mex Philly Cheese Steak Sandwiches. I crave the creamy jalapeño cream cheese daily.

A Tex-Mex spin on an old favorite, adding jalapeños and salsa really elevates this sandwich to a new level!
Recipe type: Entree
Serves: 10
  • 3 14-16oz boxes of thinly sliced sirloin beef (like Steak-Umms)
  • 2 - 3 packages hoagie rolls
  • 6 oz. softened cream cheese
  • ⅓ c. sour cream
  • ¼ c. diced jalapeño peppers
  • ½ c. salsa
  • 1½ c. shredded Monterey Jack or Pepper Jack cheese
  • 1 can diced green chilies (optional)
  1. Prepare your thinly sliced sirloin beef on a skillet until cooked thoroughly (if using diced chilies, sauté them with the beef); set aside onto a plate.
  2. Toast your hoagies slightly in a toaster oven, let cool.
  3. Mix together the cream cheese, sour cream, and jalapeños until well blended.
  4. Spread some of the cream cheese mixture on one side of the hoagie, then add a layer of steak, topping it off with salsa and Monterey Jack cheese.
  5. Using your broiler or toaster oven, heat the cheese until it has browned and melted nicely.
  6. Spread the jalapeño cream cheese onto the other half of the hoagie, place it onto the sandwich, and serve.

This goes REALLY nicely with a flavorful beer. Since it’s fall, we opted for a pumpkin beer, and it was heavenly.
