Jalapeno Garlic Cheese Bread


 My kids love spicy food.  Well, what can you expect when they have a spice loving mother like me around cooking curry all the time.  They really love pickled jalapenos.  They will request it on sandwiches, pizza... almost anything.  I was so excited when I saw a seriously large jar of jalapenos at Costco and I knew I had to come up with a fun dish to highlight all those jalapenos.  My kids were jumping up and down in the kitchen when they saw what I was making for them.  The jalapeno bread did not disappoint... they loved every bite of it and I loved how easy it was to put together.


1 loaf French bread
2 cups of cheese (cheddar, mozzarella or a mix)
sliced or diced pickled jalapenos (to taste)
1-2 sweet peppers or some bell pepper finely diced
1/3 cup softened butter or more as needed
1/2 tsp granulated garlic powder 


 Cut bread in half lengthwise. Mix butter and garlic powder together and spread on the inside of the bread.

Top with jalapenos.  Note: You can put as much or as little as you like here.   

Top with cheese and diced sweet peppers.  Bake in a 400 degree oven until cheese is melted and bread is toasted. 

Cut into slices and serve.  Enjoy.

  5. WOW and Hellllooooooo cheesy loveliness!! You are welcome to enter this belly right away!

  6. it looks so gorgeous,i am never fan of jalapeno this is definitely tempting.

  7. Your kids love jalapenos. I don't know that I can wrap my brain around that one. Dudette wouldn't even be in the same room with them if she had a choice. Hubby's a different story. He'd be fighting for a full half of that bread. I'd have to try it because it looks so amazing, but my taste buds, which are weiners, would plead for me to stop because they just can handle the heat.

  8. Love the colour of the bread,seriously makes me drool.

  9. Oooo ..cheese on top of the jalapeno looks so yummy Ramona.Costco shopping can get overwhelming and most goods last me a lifetime he hheee....

  10. Jalapenos are the perfect addition to garlic french bread! My husband will love this!

  11. My favorite carbs, cheese and bread, combined into one gloriously spicy treat. Ramona you are wonderful, simply wonderful. :D I'll take a whole load please.


  12. Oh what have you done? Marvelous! I cannot think of something I would rather have right now. Cheese. Bread. Jalapenos. Yep, that's great.

  13. I would have zero restraint with these!

  14. Although I cannot probably tolerate this spice level, my husband will appreciate this dish! Great party dish especially BBQ season is coming up!

  15. I would eat the whole loaf. Looks so good!

  16. I grew my own, pickled my own and then ATE my own jalapenos using this recipe! It is so hecka yummy good!
