Double-the-Cheese Nacho Jalapeno Spicy Garlic Bread

This nacho jalapeno spicy garlic bread is crispy around the edges, buttery in the middle, and cheesy all over the place.

Cheesy Jalapeno Garlic Bread

Garlic bread tastes so good on its own and it’s even better when a little spice, a lot of cheese and jalapenos are added to the mix.

The inspiration for making this garlic bread comes from how delicious jalapeno and cheese bagels are.

And also from an amazing jalapeno and cheese ciabatta loaf that I get from one of the grocery stores I shop at.

The sliced jalapenos on both the bagels and ciabatta loaf are the pickled type that are sold in a jar.

They’re often referred to as “nacho jalapenos” and can generally be found in the grocery store on the aisle where the pickles are, in close proximity to the bottled pepperoncini peppers.

Nacho jalapenos are often used in, what else but nacho recipes, as well as inside sandwiches for a spicy crunch.

To my taste buds, sliced nacho jalapenos have some spicy heat to them as well as a slight vinegar flavor which adds such a nice pop to this cheesy garlic bread.

Even though these jalapenos may have some heat to them, they have you coming back for more, sort of like how it is when eating wasabi.

Here are more recipes made with nacho jalapenos that you may like “Nacho Jalapeno and Salsa Grilled Cheese“, “Nacho Jalapeno Deviled Eggs“, “Pita Quesadillas with Nacho Jalapenos” and “Slow Cooker Pulled Pork and Cheesy Jalapeno Sandwich“.

There are two types of cheese in this garlic bread, cheddar and Monterey jack.

The bread used for this recipe is French bread and for a little additional spicy flavor, along with granulated garlic there’s some chili powder.

Serve this scrumptious cheesy jalapeno garlic bread as a side dish, appetizer or just because.

Let’s check out the ingredients.

Garlic Bread Ingredients

French bread, butter, granulated garlic, chili powder, cheddar cheese, Monterey jack cheese, sliced nacho jalapenos (in a jar)

printable recipe with the measurements and instructions is located at the bottom of this post.

Here’s how to make it.

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F.

Cut French Bread in Half

For the Bread – Cut a loaf of French bread…

Cut French Bread in Half

…in half widthwise.

Cut French Bread in Half

Then cut the halved piece of French bread in half lengthwise.

Cut Piece of French Bread

Select one of the quartered pieces of bread that has the rounded side.

TIP – When cut in quarters (first cut in half widthwise then in half lengthwise), the rounded sides of the French bread (the top) are often times a thicker piece of bread than the bottom of the French bread.  A thicker piece of French bread works nicely for a more substantial piece of garlic bread.  

Cut bottom off French Bread

Cut a very thin slice off of the rounded side (the uncut side)…

…if needed, cut off more thin pieces so that the bread will sit level when it’s facing cut-side up with the rounded side on the bottom.

Garlic bread ingredients

Spread butter on french bread

For the Toppings – On the cut side of the quartered piece of bread, spread softened butter.

Also spread the butter on the cut-end of the bread.

Granulated Garlic in Bowl

Then,

Add garlic powder on bread

…sprinkle granulated garlic on top of the bread.

Garlic powder on bread

It’s okay if the garlic isn’t spread evenly on top of the bread at this point.

Chili powder on bread

Sprinkle chili powder on top of the bread.

Next,

Spread butter spice on bread

…using a soft spatula, spread the granulated garlic and chili powder evenly into the butter on top of the bread.

Make 3 partial widthwise cuts about 3/4’s of the way into the bread (so there are 4 pieces of bread).

The bottom part of the bread under each cut should still be attached.

Add shredded cheese on bread

Top the bread with shredded cheddar cheese.

Also add the shredded cheese in between the partially cut sections of bread.

…add shredded Monterey Jack cheese.

Transfer the bread to an ungreased small cookie sheet, brownie pan or pizza pan.

Add jalapeno on bread

Top with sliced nacho jalapeno peppers.

Try to lay the jalapenos as flat as possible so that they don’t slide off of the cheesy bread when baking.

Although if some cheese and jalapeno slide off of the bread when baking…what a yummy morsel for the chef to enjoy.

Heating the Garlic Bread – Bake in a preheated oven until the cheese melts and the outside edges of the bread are crispy (about 13 minutes).
