Jalapeno Cheese Bread on a cutting board.
I was taking my kids to the park last week and made a quick stop at the grocery store beforehand to catch a sale on cereal. (Our house might be full of cereal addicts). I was hungry and hadn’t packed myself a snack so I bought a jalapeno cheese bread from the bakery. I felt a little silly paying 69 cents for it when I knew I could easily make it at home. So what did I do? I ate the 69 cent one and promptly went home to make 3 loaves myself. My husband was convinced I was going to give them away and wanted to make sure we got some for ourselves. Only 1 loaf got given away. Call me selfish!
We took the loaves up to a local park called “Double Peak” that has the most wonderful view. You can see for miles. You have wonderful mountain views as well as lagoon and ocean views. It is heavenly. We soaked in the views while eating our bread and then played on the three section teeter totter. If you ever have the chance to play on a three section teeter totter I highly recommend it. Seriously, it is pretty dang cool. Pure craziness. As for the bread? You should totally try that too. Delish man!

Prep Time 10 minutes
Cook Time 20 minutes
Total Time 30 minutes
  • 1/2 tablespoon instant dry yeast
  • 1/2 tablespoon salt
  • 1 cup warm water
  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1/4 cup shredded cheddar cheese
  • 1 jalapeno sliced
  • In a mixing bowl, combine the yeast with the salt and warm water. Add in the flour and knead until well combined.
  • Let rise 1 hour.
  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Shape the dough into a large ball and elongate it into an oval about 1 inch thick. Sprinkle with cheddar cheese and scatter the jalapenos on top. Keep the jalapenos towards the center as they will spread out as the cheese melts and dough puffs up.
  • Bake for about 20 minutes, until cheese starts to brown.

We tried this and it was really good. I brought it to a party and it was all eaten up immediately with several people taking seconds. It’s a great bread to serve with soup or chili. Perfect for sopping up the remains in your bowl without falling apart.


For an inexperienced cook, you need to tell them to prepare the yeast according to it’s preparation directions. The salt kills the yeast. It needs to be proofed and then it can be added. Otherwise, the dough will never rise.

The bread still looked almos raw. Maybe add the cheese and jalapeño during the last 10 minutes of baking so the dough has time to bake.
