Jalapeno Popper Pizza Bread


Jalapeno Popper Pizza Bread



  • One large loaf of Italian Bread
  • 4 ounces butter, softened
  • 4 ounces cream cheese, softened
  • 2-4 jalapeno peppers, sliced – I used red jalapenos
  • 2 tablespoons taco seasoning – or try a nice Cajun blend, or use a variety of chili powders
  • 1 tablespoon garlic powder
  • 6 ounces cooked chorizo
  • 1 cup shredded cheddar cheese

Cooking Directions

  1. Heat oven to 350 degrees.
  2. Slice the Italian bread in half lengthwise and save half. You can freeze it, or double the rest of the ingredients and make two!
  3. Lightly score the bread side so the next ingredients can drip inside a bit when the baking starts.
  4. Set the bread onto a baking sheet lined with parchment paper. Spread on the butter and bake them 5 minutes. Remove.
  5. Spread cream cheese over the bread and sprinkle with taco seasonings, garlic and chorizo.
  6. Top with jalapeno pepper slices and cheddar cheese.
  7. Bake for 5-10 minutes, or until the cheese is nicely melted.
  8. Slice and serve!
