Recipe: Chili Cheese Bread

I love fresh homemade bread and so does everyone in my family.  This is a good one that even my little girls who don't like spicy foods will eat.  The chilis just dissolve into the dough.  This is great with soups and salads.  I start my breads in the breadmaker and then bake them off in the oven.  I use glass, stone and metal loaf pans and it turns out great everytime! 

Chili Cheese Bread
1 cup water
2 tbsp oil
1 4 oz can diced chilis
4 cups AP flour
1/4 cup sugar
3/4 tsp salt
3 tsp yeast
2 cups sharp cheddar cheese

Add items to bread machine pan in order listed excluding the cheese.  Set cycle to dough and allow the dough to go through the first rising.  At the punch down, add cheddar cheese and allow it to get worked into the dough.  Once the dough has the cheese incorporated, turn off the cycle.  Turn the dough out and cut in half.  Spray two loaf pans and add a half to each pan.  Allow breads to rise in a warm area.  I ususally put the pans in the microwave.  Once the dough has doubled in size, place in a 350 degree oven for about 20 minutes.  Allow to cool in the pans for about 10 minutes then remove from pans and allow them to cool on a rack.
