Cheddar Chili Braid

Total Time

1 loaf (12 slices)

Hot roll mix gives me a head start when making this savory bread. I usually make it with a big pot of chili and serve thick warm slices for "dunking".

  • 1 package (16 ounces) hot roll mix
  • 1 cup warm water (120° to 130°)
  • 2 large eggs
  • 2 cups shredded cheddar cheese
  • 2 tablespoons canned chopped green chilies, drained
  • 2 tablespoons grated Parmesan cheese


  1. In a large bowl, combine the contents of the roll mix and yeast packets; stir in the water, one egg, cheddar cheese and chilies. Turn onto a floured surface; knead dough until smooth and elastic, about 5 minutes. Cover and let rest for 5 minutes.
  2. Divide into thirds. Shape each into a 14-in. rope. Place ropes on a greased baking sheet and braid; pinch ends to seal and tuck under. Cover and let rise in a warm place until doubled, about 30 minutes.
  3. Beat remaining egg; brush over dough. Sprinkle with Parmesan cheese. Bake at 375° for 30 minutes or until golden brown. Remove from pan to a wire rack.
