Taco seasoning and green chiles are the secrets to this bread's slightly spicy flavor. A friend gave me the recipe. —Twilla Eisele, Wellsville, Kansas


  • 3-1/2 cups to 4 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 cup cornmeal
  • 1 envelope taco seasoning
  • 3 tablespoons sugar
  • 2 packages (1/4 ounce each) active dry yeast
  • 1 tablespoon dried minced onion
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 can (10-3/4 ounces) condensed tomato soup, undiluted
  • 3/4 cup water
  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 1 can (4 ounces) chopped green chiles, drained


  1. In a large bowl, combine 1-1/2 cups flour, cornmeal, taco seasoning, sugar, yeast, onion and salt. In a large saucepan, heat the soup, water and butter to 120°-130°. Add to dry ingredients; beat on medium speed for 3 minutes. Stir in chiles and enough remaining flour to form a soft dough.
  2. Turn onto a floured surface; knead until smooth and elastic, about 6-8 minutes. Place in a greased bowl, turning once to grease top. Cover and let rise in a warm place until doubled, about 1 hour.
  3. Punch dough down. Shape into a loaf. Place in a greased 9x5-in. loaf pan. Cover and let rise in a warm place until doubled, about 45 minutes.
  4. Bake at 350° for 45-50 minutes or until golden brown. Remove from pan to a wire rack. Serve warm.
