Jalapeno Cheese Crisps, Low Carb, THM S

What do you do when you find your 13 year old has pinned recipes on Pinterest?  You make it!  Poor Sophie always feels left out in the treat department since discovering her CSID (sugar intolerance). I'm so proud of her for hunting recipes she can enjoy.  This is something she will have to deal with the rest of her life and this shows me she's turning into a food responsible young lady :)
If you're looking for a crunchy, cheesy, sorta spicy snack, this will hit the spot! Everyone at my table loved them.  Enjoy :)

JALAPENO CHEESE CRISPS (makes about 12)
1 cup shredded cheese ( I used colby jack, but use your favorite!)
1 jalapeno, sliced and seeded

Skillet method (I used electric skillet):
Heat skillet (electric skillet was set on 300-325 degrees).  Place a 1 TBSP pile of cheese on skillet and top with a slice of jalapeno.  Cook until the cheese is bubbly and starting to brown.  If the cheese is ready you will be able to flip with a spatula.  If the cheese is to soft to flip, it isn't ready and let it cook another 30 seconds and try again.  Once flipped, cook until it's brown around the edges.  Let drain on a paper towel. They will get crunchy while they're cooling.

The original recipe I adapted this from can be viewed here.
