In the meantime, chop half of the jalapeno slices. Reserve the rest to sprinkle on top.
In a medium mixing bowl, mix together cream cheese, sour cream, chopped jalapenos, salt and pepper.
Arrange the reserved chopped jalapenos over the cheese.
Note: We like our cheese so melted that it starts to brown. I place the bread under the broiler set on low setting and broil for 20 seconds. Watch the bread while melting the cheese and remove from oven as soon as it reaches the desired look
