1 cup finely grated Cheddar
1/2 cup finely grated low-fat mozzarella
2/3 cup plain nonfat Greek-style yogurt
2 tablespoons chopped fresh chives
1/4 teaspoon salt

1/2 green pepper, finely chopped

In a medium bowl, add the Cheddar, mozzarella, yogurt, chives, salt and pepper, green and red peppers and jalapeno. Stir well to combine. Spread the mixture evenly among 4 slices of bread and top with a couple of slices of tomato. Top with the remaining slices of bread.
