Zesty Cheddar Bread

Recipe by Dreamgoddess

Wonderful bread to serve with chili or thick hearty stews. This recipe comes from a Betty Crocker cookbooklet.

I needed to use up some chipotle chiles and found this recipe. This bread packs a punch if you get a piece of chile. DH loved it though (had 3 pieces!). The chile measurement ended up being 2 chiles for me. I used a colby-jack combination for the cheese and did grease the pan well.
