This is a wonderful bread to pair with any southwestern dish! It is pretty labor-intensive, but the reward is well worth it.
We kept the leftover green chilis and put them on top of the bread, and it turned out well. We did try locating the green chili powder, but to no avail. To be honest, though, I cannot imagine that it could have made this bread any better. A real winner!
