Kick up basic beer bread a notch by adding sharp cheddar cheese and diced green chilies
  • 3 cups all-purpose flour
  • 3 tsp baking powder
  • 1 tsp salt
  • ¼ cup sugar
  • 12 ounces beer at room temperature (I prefer to use Yuengling Traditional Lager)
  • ½ cup (1 stick) unsalted butter
  • 1 4-ounce can diced green chilies, drained
  • 1 cup shredded sharp cheddar cheese
  1. Preheat your oven to 350°F. Spray a 9”x5” loaf pan, or 3 mini-loaf pans, with flour-based cooking spray, then line with parchment paper.
  2. Combine the flour, baking powder, salt and sugar in a large bowl.
  3. Pour the beer over the mix, and use a spatula to gently fold into the dry ingredients. Do not over-mix.
  4. Add the green chilies and cheddar cheese and mix until just combined.
  5. Pour the mixture into the prepared loaf pan(s).
  6. Melt the butter in the microwave and pour over top of the batter.
  7. Bake for 50-60 minutes, or until a toothpick comes out clean.
  8. Remove to a wire rack to cool in pan for 15-20 minutes, then remove from pan and allow to cool completely before serving.
