In a medium mixing bowl, mix together cream cheese, sour cream, and chopped jalapeños.
Spread the jalapeño dip mixture on the bread, dividing equally between the two pieces of bread.
Top bread with mozzarella cheese.
Arrange the reserved jalapeño slices over the cheese.
Place bread in the oven for about 12 minutes, until cheese is melty. Remove from the oven and place on a cutting board. Let cool for few minutes.
