My wife was making us some Enchilada soup the other night and she casually mentioned that some bread would be nice. You know, just whip something together in an hour for dinner!! So I scrambled around and decided on something spicy and hot for a bread, beer bread to be exact. This is what I came up with, hope you like it.
3 cups flour
3 tbs sugar
1/4 tsp salt
1 can Mexican beer
1/2 – 3 Jalapeno chile’s (depending on taste) diced
2 green onions diced
1 clove garlic minced
1 4oz can Fire roasted diced green chiles (mild or hot)
1/4 cayenne pepper
1 1/2 cups of Mexican blend cheese
Mix flour, sugar, salt, cumin and cayenne pepper together until blended well. Mince Jalapeno chile’s and garlic. Dice green onions and place all three in a pan or Dutch oven to saute for just a couple of minutes to release the flavors. Mix all ingredients (except beer) together until well blended. Add whole can of beer and mix till you have a moist glob of batter, yes it needs to be the consistency of a glob of wet flour. Pour this into your well greased pan or Dutch oven.
Cook at 350 degrees for about 45 minutes. Remove and let cool. The bottom of your bread should go thump when you rap it with your knuckle.
Add some cheese to the top while it cools down!!!
