Green Chili Cheese Bread

This green chili cheese bread has become a hit at our house and it is neck and neck with Mary’s Cheese Bread (which hasn’t appeared here yet, but I’m thinking it should!).

It’s as easy to make as our easy Texas Toast and just as yummy!

This is so easy to make and a little different. Your family will love it just like mine did.

Cheese pulls galore and a slightly different flavor that will satisfy even the pickiest of eaters.

The only problem is if one of the kids sees something “green” on the bread and they aren’t a kid who eats anything green. So there is that.

Here’s What You’ll Need

  • Loaf of Italian Bread
  • Room Temp or melted Butter
  • Chopped green chilis
  • Garlic powder, salt and pepper, paprika
  • Shredded cheese of your choice (pepper jack is a great option).

  2. Mix the softened butter and chilis together and spread on the bread. Sprinkle with salt, pepper and garlic powder.
  3. Sprinkle shredded cheese over the top.
  4. Bake at 400 for 5-8 minutes until cheese is melted and bubbly. Sprinkle with paprika.

Tips and Tricks for Perfect Green Chili Cheese Bread

  • Use a fresh fluffy bread for this recipe.
  • Use Chopped green chilis in the small can, not the larger chunks.
  • For an extra kick, you can add some chopped jalapeños as well, but only do so if your family/guests are ok with stronger/hotter flavors.
  • It’s important to use the softened butter so that the butter doesn’t try to tear your bread when you spread it.
  • Layer the cheese on pretty high because as it melts over the edges of the bread, it makes a delightful crust.
  • If using salted butter, use less salt for sprinkling.
  • Always bake this on some aluminum foil either directly on the rack or on a baking sheet. If the cheese drips, you don’t want that in the bottom of your oven.

Substitutions

  • Bread – If you don’t have Italian, it’s fine to try this with other hearty breads like texas toast or french breads.
  • Butter – butter substitutes that melt and are soft for combining with the chilis work fine.
  • Seasoning – Feel free to change up the seasonings as you see fit. You can try onion powder, chili powder, cumin, ranch dressing seasoning, etc.
  • Cheese – I often use a mozzarella for this bread but it also works great with a Monterey Jack or even a sharp cheddar. A small sprinkle of parm over the top when it comes out of the oven is delightful as well.
