This bread is a big hit at our house and at potluck gatherings. Its unusual texture makes it a conversation piece, so almost everybody tries it.


  • 2 loaves (1 pound each) frozen bread dough, thawed
  • 1 can (8-3/4 ounces) whole kernel corn, drained
  • 1 egg, lightly beaten
  • 1 can (3-1/2 ounces) whole jalapenos, chopped
  • 2 tablespoons taco seasoning
  • 1 jar (2 ounces) sliced pimientos, drained
  • 1-1/2 teaspoons vinegar


  1. Cut bread dough into 1-in. pieces. Place all ingredients in a large bowl and toss to mix well. Spoon into two greased 8x4-in. loaf pans. Cover and let stand for 15 minutes.
  2. Bake at 350° for 35-40 minutes. Cool in pan 10 minutes before removing to a wire rack. Serve warm if desired.
Editor's Note: Remove the seeds from the jalapenos before chopping for a milder bread.
Peppers (Hot)
Wear disposable gloves when cutting hot peppers; the oils can burn skin. Avoid touching your face.
