In this No Knead Jalapeno Cumin Cheese Bread, I didn’t use the spicy jalapenos since my kids can’t eat very spicy food though I LOVE spicy, especially jalapenos. I used canned sweet jalapenos instead. But I think what really elevated the taste of this bread was the cumin cheese that I added in it. I had got this big cheese wheel from Amsterdam and I grated some of it into the dough. If you don’t have cumin cheese, no worries. Use cheddar cheese instead and sprinkle some cumin in the dough. That will do it.

- 3 cups flour
- 1½ TSP salt
- 11/2 TSP dry yeast
- 1½ cups warm water
- ¼ cup diced jalapeños
- 1 cup shredded cumin cheese (if you don’t have cumin cheese, use any other cheese). Cumin is optional
- Mix flour, salt and yeast in a big bowl. Then pour in the warm water and stir until completely combined.
- Mix in the jalapenos and cumin cheese. Dough will look messy and not smooth and that is completely okay.
- Cover tightly with plastic wrap and let sit for 12-18 hours. After 18 hours, the dough will look puffy, bubbly and sticky.
- Preheat oven to 450 degrees F.
- Heavily flour clean counter top or surface. Transfer the dough onto floured surface and shape into a round ball. Cover lightly with plastic wrap (you can just lay the plastic wrap that you used to cover your large bowl over the top) and let dough rest.
- While the dough is resting, place your dutch oven or baking pot into the oven for 30 minutes to pre-heat. Since I don’t have a dutch oven, I used a normal oven proof deep pot.
- Place ball of dough in the center of the baking pot and cover with lid.
- Bake at 450 degrees F for 30 minutes.
- Return uncovered to oven and bake for an additional 15 minutes until done. Bread will be golden in color.
