This flavorful bread gets its kick from jalapeno peppers. Best of all, the bread machine does all the hard work for you! I use undrained chopped jalapenos from a small 4-ounce can for this recipe, but alternatively, you could use mild chopped chile peppers from a can or chop canned jalapeno rings. You can also use fewer jalapenos or mild chile peppers for a milder bread.

What You'll Need

  • 1 cup water
  • 3 cups bread flour
  • 3 tablespoons nonfat dry milk
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons sugar
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons salt
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons butter, in small pieces
  • 2 teaspoons active dry yeast
  • 2 to 3 tablespoons chopped canned jalapeno peppers
  • 1/4 cup finely shredded Monterey Jack cheese or finely shredded Mexican blend of cheeses

How to Make It

  1. Add the ingredients to the bread machine pan according to your bread machine manufacturer's suggested order.
  2. Select white or basic with a light or medium crust.
  3. Allow​ bread to cool before slicing.

Makes one 2-pound loaf.
