Jalepeno Cheddar Bread

Instead of the typical cornbread that I normally serve with chili, I decided to change it up and bake a bread that I have had saved in my que for a while now.  I've never made any type of bread that has cheese in it so I was excited to try this and for Ron to test it out.  We absolutely loved it!  It has officially replaced all chili-accompanying bread from here on out.

This bread takes minutes to put together.  Most of the work involved is cutting up the peppers.  I didn't use roasted red peppers for my bread like the original recipe requested.  I knew I'd have enough trouble getting Ron to eat a bread that had green specks in it, so the red would certainly be a challenge.  I did use the green pepper but he couldn't tell the difference.  This bread is delicious.  Ron cut up chunks to eat with his chili.  I've never seen him so excited to eat leftovers, but I'm happy to know that the entire meal was a success.
