I was thinking the other day how a few months ago I was on such a kick with making bread, and I somehow stopped. I'm not sure why, since using my bread machine takes no time whatsoever, so I decided it was time to remedy that.
Here is a recipe I found on this site dedicated to bread machine recipes. This is pretty much where I find all my recipes, as there are so many to choose from! I thought this Mexican inspired bread sounded interesting, and I happened to have all I needed on hand.
The bread was ok. Nothing wrong with it, but it wasn't really special either. I wasn't too thrilled having it alone, but I did end up making a grilled cheese sandwich using pepperjack cheese (pictured above), and I really loved the combo. I think this bread tasted better toasted and used in a sandwich. So - take it or leave it - its worth trying once, but I probably won't make this one again.
