    A week ago or so I made a loaf of bread in my dutch oven that I posted in the breads section.


    This week I decided to amp up the recipe and make it just a wee bit hot.

    Here's the basic recipe:

    3c unbleached all-purpose flour
    1t yeast
    1t salt
    1-1/2c warm water
    In a large mixing bowl, whisk together flour, salt and yeast. Add water and stir until a shaggy mixture forms (mixture will be loose and sticky; this is what you want).

    Cover bowl with plastic wrap and set aside for 12 - 18 hours (up to 24). Overnight works great.
    Preheat oven to 450. Place a cast iron dutch oven with a lid in the oven and heat the pot for 30 minutes.

    Meanwhile, pour the risen dough onto a heavily floured surface (mixture will be sticky) and lightly shape into a round loaf.
    Remove hot pot from the oven and carefully set in the dough. Cover and return to oven for 30 minutes.

    Then, remove the lid and bake an additional 10-15 minutes.

    Carefully remove bread from oven and from pot and place on a cooling rack.

    And here is what I added and/or substituted:

    I added two diced Jalapenos, a 1/2 teaspoon of Habenero dust., and I substituted a 1/4 of fire water for part of the 1 1/2 cup water.

    Naw just working man's hands! Just don't touch anything afterwards!!!
  4. I'll bet that would be good spread with butter & covered with more habanero & garlic then grilled  [​IMG]   Let me know how it turns out I may make some with a couple variations. Wish I could smell it!
  5. Made a loaf of chili cheese bread like that a few years ago. That bread would make the devil cry. Too bad because the bread it self was very good.
  6. That sounds like my kind of bread! Any chance you would share the recipe?

    I sure will, hope the dough doesn't melt the plastic bowl its resting in! The fire water, is really really good. Those Habs are fantastic!
  9.                       CHILI CHEESE BREAD

    3           cups    bread flour                                                               1     cup     cheddar cheese in small cubes

    2 1/4      tsp      dry yeast                                                          2 or 3    jalapeno peppers sliced

    1                      egg

    1 1/2      TB       dry skim milk

    4 1/2      TB       shortening or sweet butter

    1 1/2      tsp      sugar

    1           cup      warm 105 deg water   add 1 TB at a time as needed

    1 1/2      tsp      kosher salt

        Mix dough by standard method, place in greased bowl, cover and let rise. I put a heating pad on low under the bowl

    After first rise, roll out dough on a well floured board. Evenly place diced cheese and sliced jalapenos on surface.

    roll dough into a log shape and place into large, Pam sprayed loaf pan for final rise. When a little more than doubled in size

    Bake at 375 for 25-30 min  or til GB&D.

    Obviously my error was not seeding or deviening  the peppers first  Maybe some of you Special Forces guys can handle it, I couldn't.

    Sorry for the delay, I type about six words a minute. God bless auto-spell.........Paul
  10. Thanks man - I really enjoy my garden & especially the hot pepper section of it  [​IMG]
  11. Thanks Paul! I'm gonna try some of this really soon & add some habaneros & some Death Rain Nitro to your mix. Looking forward to it already!  [​IMG]

    Okay, couldn't wait until dinner to check it out. At first it's not very hot, but after a couple bites the lingering effect starts to happen, and before you know it there's a pretty good tingling feeling throughout your mouth!!! The flavor is excellent. Next time I'm going to substitute 1/2 a cup of fire water for the water and add a teaspoon of Habanero dust! The inside on the tall end of the loaf is a under cooked so I would add another 10 minutes of cook time when using fresh ingredients in the mix.

    Looks great, but there is no way I would try that.  I confess, I'm a wimp when it comes to habenero's or ghost peppers.  I'll eat peppers, just don't have a death wish when it comes to the nuclear stuff.
  19. Looks good man!  I second the fire water & habanero dust.  When I make mine I may also add some habs in place of the starter peppers. I have some I froze. I will probably add some Death Rain Nitro too. Might as well make it nice & hot eh?  I still wish I could smell yours  [​IMG]   Bet it doesn't last long  [​IMG]

    Yeah, it's pretty much gone.... More fire water in the next batch. The Habanero dust you sent was a nice addition, but I should have used a full teaspoon! Next time more fire water too!
