This Dog-Friendly Cafe Is Serving Up Jalapeño Popper Grilled Cheese with Hidden Valley Ranch

Boris & Horton, the famously dog-friendly cafe in New York City, has made a point of having artisan breads and cheeses on its menu since its inception. They do a number of things with these items — toast, cheese plates, and, naturally, grilled cheese sandwiches. Continuing on with that tradition, the cafe will be making a Jalapeño Popper Grilled Cheese Sandwich all September for the Coast 2 Coast Ranch tour, presented by Hidden Valley ® Ranch.

As all Boris & Horton sandwiches do, it starts with two thick slices of Pain Au Levain, an airy sourdough, from the nearby Balthazar Bakery.


These tremendous slices next are coated in delectable cream cheese, on top of which sits a luxurious layer of Muenster cheese. Then, a generous portion of pickled jalapeños are piled on top. Then, the whole thing is dusted in a savory Hidden Valley Original Ranch Seasoning, which, conveniently, comes in shaker form now.

Obviously, this wasn’t enough ranch, if that’s even possible. Because the sandwich is also served with a Middle Eastern-inspired ranch sauce. Made by mixing the Middle Eastern yogurt cheese, labneh, with Hidden Valley Original Ranch Seasoning, it gives the dip we all know and love an ultra-creamy texture and a slight kiss of exquisite tartness.

Boris & Horton’s love letter to a couple of America’s favorite snack combos, ranch and jalapeño poppers, will be available for all of September, during the Hidden Valley Coast 2 Coast Ranch Tour. If you’re interested in finding more about the ranch hotspots around the country, head over to
