Description

This bread is GOOD!!

Ingredients

  • 3 cups Warm Water
  • 1-½ Tablespoon Yeast
  • 1-½ Tablespoon Sugar
  • 1-½ Tablespoon Salt
  • 6-½ cups Flour
  • ½ cups Jarred Jalapeno Slices
  • 1-½ cup Cubed Cheddar Cheese, About .5" Each

Preparation

Mix all of the ingredients together, only until all of the flour is integrated, about 1 minute. DO NOT KNEAD!! The dough will be wet and sticky, this is how it is supposed to look.

Cover the bowl with plastic wrap and let sit unrefrigerated for 2 hours.

Cut the dough into three pieces, one for each loaf. If you only want one loaf, then cut off enough for one loaf and place the rest of the dough in the refrigerator for up to 7 days.

To make a loaf of bread, take the piece of dough that you just took out and fold the dough in half once, and then in thirds. DO NOT KNEAD!! Let the dough rest for 10 minutes.

After resting place the dough into a heavily floured tea towel and cover. Let sit until double in size.

To bake the bread, place a large oven proof pot that has a lid in the oven, turn the oven on to 450° F.

After the pot has sat in the oven for 30 minutes to heat, take the pot out and plop the dough into the pot, it’s okay if the dough looks a little weird.

Cover the pot with the lid and place in the 450° F oven to bake for 30 minutes.

Cool on a wire rack for at least 20 minutes before cutting into the bread. Enjoy! Makes three loaves.

I love making bread and was looking for a recipe for jalapeno cheese bread. Came across this recipe today and decided to try it. WOW, I was confused (at first) the dough was like nothing I ever dealt with before, but I push through and followed the instructions. To my AMAZEMENT this bread was fantastic. It has a chewing texture along with great taste. The only change I made was I added a cup of jalapeno peppers and used pepper jack cheese along with the cheddar (we like hot stuff) Great recipe!!! Great Job! and thanks, this will be my go to recipe for this bread.

I have made this bread over and over and it is always a huge hit. Today I replaced the jalapenos with a fresh canned garlic….very good! I have found that this makes two wonderful size loaves.. the three loaves were just to small. Thanks for a great recipe!

My husband asked me last night to make Jalapeno cheese bread. I haven’t in a long time and this looks more interesting than I what usually do. I really like baking the bread in a dutch oven. Will try over the weekend.

I just made this bread and its awesome. If you like the jalapeno’s – I’d suggest using a bit more than what’s called for as they don’t end up in every slice. I used fresh jalapeno’s as well. I made two round, larger loaves – using my cast iron dutch ovens. Worked great.

Wow! This is an awesome recipe. So simple to put together and even more simple to bake. The texture is so soft and it looks actually like professionally made bread. I used my own spicy pickled jalapenos which added a little more to the taste. Also, it is important to use “cubed” pieces of cheese not shredded otherwise you wont get that good cheesy taste. Highly recommend.
