This works so nice to zip up a sandwich or try it buttered and placed on a griddle till golden brown and serve with a soup or salad.

i have to say i was dissapointed in this bread. It had a very nice texture, light and soft. But I could harldy taste the jalapenos or the cheese. I was hoping for a nice spicy bread so i even used extra fresh jalapenos, but it ended up tasting like regular white bread. I would use more cheese and jalapenos if i made it again because it does have a very nice texture. I just put it in the bread machine and it turned out perfectly done on the basic dough setting.
