Bread Machine – Jalapeno Cheese Bread

This bread machine Jalapeno cheese bread recipe is simple to make and makes a nicely “hot” bread. The keys to this delicious recipe are the shredded cheese, fresh Jalapenos and butter. Your family will love this Jalapeno cheese bread because it is a moderately spicy bread that can be used for sandwich lunches. For example, it is wonderful for a slightly spicier grilled cheese sandwich, ham & cheese sandwich, chicken salad sandwich, etc. This bread can also be used for dipping in soup, with cream cheese, etc.

If your family really loves hot & spicy food, you can use 2 Jalapenos (versus the 1 Jalapeno used in the recipe below). However, if your family doesn’t like Jalapeno peppers, you can always try our regular (non-Jalapeno) Bread Machine Cheese Bread.

Since this Jalapeno cheese bread recipe is done in a bread machine, it is simple & easy to make. It should take you only 5 minutes or so to prepare and then you let the bread machine do the rest of the work.

Ingredients – Bread Machine – Jalapeno Cheese Bread

  • 1 1/8 Cups – Milk (lukewarm) – 1 1/8 cups of milk is equivalent to 1 cup and 2 tablespoons of milk
  • 4 Tablespoons – Unsalted Butter
  • 3 Cups – Bread Flour
  • 1 Cup – Shredded Cheese
  • 1 – Jalapeno Pepper (diced into small bits)
  • 1 Tablespoon – Brown Sugar
  • 1 Teaspoon – Italian Herbs
  • 1 1/2 Teaspoons – Salt
  • 1 1/2 Teaspoons – Bread Machine Yeast

Instructions – Bread Machine – Jalapeno Cheese Bread

  • Bread machine settings – 2 pound loaf, light color and “basic” bread setting.
  • Pour the milk into the bread pan and then add the other ingredients including the diced Jalapeno. Place the bread machine yeast in last and the yeast should not touch the liquid (until the bread machine is turned on and the ingredients start to be mixed together).
  • Enter the correct settings (i.e. basic, 2 lb and light color) and press the start button.
  • When the bread machine has finished baking the bread, you should remove the bread and place it on a cooling rack. Use oven mitts when removing the bread machine container (bread loaf pan) as it will be very hot!
  • After removing the bread, don’t forget to remove the mixing paddle if it is stuck in the bread. Use oven mitts as the mixing paddle will be very hot coming out of the bread machine. Or wait until the bread is completely cooled and then remove the mixing paddle.
  • In our bread machine, the baking takes about 3 hours for a 2 pound bread at the light color & basic bread settings. However, some machines can differ and you don’t want to be away from home when the bread machine “finished” alarm goes off! Your bread machine should show you the length of the baking time after you have entered the settings into the machine. This will allow you to know when to be in the kitchen in order to remove the bread.
  • Before using your bread machine, you should read the bread machine manufacturer’s instructions in order to use the bread machine effectively and safely. In addition, some bread machines may operate slightly differently so please read the instructions from your bread machine manufacturer in order to learn about more about your machine’s exact baking process, kneading time, etc.

Tips – Jalapeno Cheese Bread Recipe

  • The tips below are designed to help bread machine “novices” and those who haven’t touched their bread machine in years.
  • Make sure you don’t confuse your chili peppers when purchasing your ingredients for this recipe. Jalapenos are moderately hot but other peppers can be extremely spicy/hot.
  • Use your family’s favorite cheese. I used a package of mixed cheese for this Jalapeno cheese bread machine recipe because my family finds the taste of cheddar cheese too overpowering.
  • If your family likes spicier foods (like my youngest son), you can use 2 Jalapeno peppers (versus the single diced Jalapeno called for in the recipe).
  • I diced up the entire Jalapeno (seeds and all) when making this recipe. If you want things to be a little less “hot”, you can remove the seeds.
  • Be careful when cutting Jalapeno. It can be painful if you get any of the Jalapeno juice in your eyes, a finger cut, etc. To avoid this issue, some people like to wear plastic kitchen gloves and glasses when cutting up Jalapeno.
  • Don’t use pickled Jalapeno because it will add a vinegary “pickled” taste to the bread. You should try to use fresh Jalapenos.
  • If you like jalapenos & you are looking for a savory (non-sweet) cornbread, you should try our Bread Machine – Jalapeno Cornbread recipe.
  • If you have a problem with a bread machine recipe, please make sure that you are following the recipe exactly (i.e. using right bread machine settings), using the correct amount of an ingredient (i.e. accidentally adding a teaspoon when a tablespoon is called for), using the correct ingredients (i.e. bread machine yeast versus regular yeast or bread flour versus all purpose flour), etc. Don’t “wing” things with recipes.
  • If you start substituting ingredients, you are experimenting and should not expect similar results to the recipe shown above. You can expect some successes but more potential disappointments when you start to experiment with recipes.
  • Be aware that some bread recipes may differ slightly between different types of bread machines. Therefore, please read your bread machine manufacturer’s  instructions for basic bread recipes (i.e. white bread or whole wheat bread) as these are more likely to work on your individual bread machine.
  • If you haven’t used your bread machine in a long time, please buy some new bread machine yeast before making your bread. Old yeast can die or lose its potency and this will lead to bread that does not rise properly. Bread machine yeast may not be viable if it has been sitting in your pantry for years.
  • Always wear oven mitts/gloves when dealing with a bread machine. The bread pan and the rest of the bread machine can get very hot during the baking process. This means that the bread pan and bread machine is likely to be very hot when you attempt to remove a baked good from the bread machine and/or bread pan.
