Jalapeno Garlic Bread

“My mother loves spicy foods, so I created this crusty, rustic loaf just to suit her taste,“ writes Natalie Ann Gallagher from Clovis, California. “Now my whole family enjoys its zesty flavor and asks for it often.“

    A big hit with the family! I didn't find it spicy at all, considering the amount of jalapenos included. Next time I may add more garlic and be a bit more generous with the butter on the inside.

    I just made this bread today and it is delicious! I just cut into it a few minutes ago and have already polished off 2 slices. It was easy to make and I love the swirl design you get from rolling it up. I added some cheddar cheese inside with the jalapeno mixture. It would be fun to also make a cinnamon swirl bread with this recipe as well : ) YUM!
