- For a spicier sandwich, leave the jalapeno pepper seeds intact.
- For a milder sandwich, use a milder cheese like Monterey Jack.
- Substitute Swiss cheese with Monterey Jack cheese. The Monterey Jack cheese is a milder cheese with a creamy texture that will provide a more subtle flavor to the sandwich.
- Substitute deli ham with bacon. The bacon will add a smoky flavor to the sandwich and will provide a more savory taste.
