I was a little hesitant to try making this bread because I don't have a bread machine, but it caught my interest and I'm glad I tried it. The bread turned out beautifully and was really delicious. I mixed all the ingredients together, kneaded the dough very well and let it rise for about 4 hours. It only took about 35 minutes to bake it. The aroma of the bread baking was heavenly! I served this with Beef Noodle Paprikash and steamed broccoli. It was a delicious meal.
This is a wonderful bread! Use 1.5 lb. bread maker setting. The texture is perfect. Most of the time, I don't add the taco seasoning which enables it to be the perfect side to many soups. I usually use mild cheddar cheese but occasionally use sharp cheddar. It is really tasty either way. I love this bread! Am making it tonight as a side for homemade Chicken Noodle Soup. :-)
Made for the Nov Tex-Mex Photo Challenge, this bread is perfectly textured, tasty & would be great w/a Tex-Mex breakfast, taco salad or tortilla soup. I had a slice slathered w/butter while still warm & will try the breakfast option next. The taco seasoning & cheddar flavors are subtle & tend to meld together. You know they are there, but neither grabs your immediate attention. I will prob dbl the taco seasoning next time, but not use a full packet as suggested by another reviewer. Thx for sharing this recipe w/us.
This bread smelled amazing while it was baking. The recipe worked really well, and the dough was very nice, but I think it needed more taco seasoning...probably the whole packet. Definitely worth making!
This was just terrific. I used taco mix from a Zaar recipe and added a bit more than the recipe called for. Very unique and very good in my opinion. Have made this twice and will be doing it again. Thanks Paula and Matt
Very nice bread, tastes good as toast and has a nice aroma to it too. 1.5lb setting would work fine. Thanks!
This bread is certainly tasty! The taco and cheese flavor is very subtle and not overpowering. I am sorry to say that I didn't serve it with anything except a little butter and now its gone :) The recipe states not to use it in 1 1/2 lb bread machine and so I was nervous about the setting, so I used the 2 lb setting, but I will use the 1 1/2 setting next time adn I think it will be fine. It must have to do with the type of bread machine.
Without a bread machine - did you add the yeast dry, or did you proof it first? My bread machine died, but I'd like to try this recipe anyway.
