This is a very tasty bread with a slight kick ...delicious.

Sometimes I will put pepper jack cheese instead of the cheddar for a little more zing...yummy

How to Make Cheesy Jalapeno Bread


  1. In a large metal or glass bowl combine all the ingredients , just until all the flour is moistened , DO NOT KNEAD. The dough will be moist and sticky.
  2. Cover bowl with a moist kitchen towel or plastic wrap and set in a warm area for 2 hours to rise the dough. ( I put mine in an off oven with the light on )
  3. Cut the dough into 2 equal pieces for loafs.
  4. If your only baking one loaf , Place the other section in the refrigerator for up to 7 days.
  5. Place one section of the dough in a heavily floured bowl and cover once again until the dough rises to doubles in size.
  6. Pre-heat a large heavy dutch oven pan with the lid on in a 450° oven for at least 30 minutes.
  7. Carefully remove the heated dutch oven from the oven and PLOP the dough in the pot , Cover and return the dutch oven back to the hot oven.
  8. Bake @ 450° for 30 minutes ,when done baking ; Remove from the dutch oven and place bread on a wire rack and let cool for at least 15 to 20 minutes before slicing.
