  3. Cut bread lengthwise into 1-inch strips to within 1/2 inch of loaf bottom, taking care to not cut all the way through the bread. Rotate bread; repeat cutting into 1-inch strips, creating a crosshatch pattern.
  4. Spoon butter mixture between strips. Stuff with monterey jack and jalapeno peppers. Wrap loaf in aluminum foil; place on baking sheet.
  5. Bake for 30 minutes. Unwrap; bake for 8-10 minutes longer or until cheese is melted. Serve warm.

Recipe Tips

  • Avoid touching face when handling jalapeno peppers. Consider wearing gloves, as oils may burn skin.
  • For less spicy heat, remove seeds and membranes from jalapenos before slicing.
