This bread kicks butt! If you like spicy food, you must make this bread! Everyone who has tried this bread has loved it! It makes you want to go out and buy a bread machine if you don't already have one. This bread goes great with chili or any kind of soup. Get the recipe, make the bread, fall in love.

I was underwhelmed by this bread. There is some flavor present in it that tastes a little odd. (I think it is the bullion.) If I ever make this again, I will reduce the bullion (or eliminate it) and reduce the onion powder.

As hubs put it, bread is generally neutral in flavor and that's good and the way it should be. And when bread IS flavored with something, it's often overpowering. When he eats bread, he says, he wants bread, not a mouthful of herbs, for instance. With this bread, however, the combination of flavors is subtle and pleasant. It's hard to describe what it tastes like because all of the seasonings are so well blended. I do detect the chili powder and a hint of the beer, and even though I did not use the chile oil and only half the amount of cayenne pepper called for, we still could detect the "bite." I know neither of us would have cared for this had I used both and in the amounts called for because we wouldn't like "hot and spicy" bread! Just to make things simple I used the 3:1 ratio of flour and liquid, so I used a cup of beer and three cups of flour, then upped the rest of the ingredients just slightly to compensate. I will be serving this with "White Chili with Chicken," also from this site. (Hubs generally resists any kind of flavored bread and he really liked this one!)

Super delish! Made my own chili oil mixing a little olive oil with red pepper flakes. Put the beer, spices & wet ingred. in the bread maker & let sit until room temp. Put the flour & yeast on top and it turned out so, so tasty!

I made this with a bread machine with no changes to the recipe and its was great. The next time I made it I added half a cup of cheddar cheese and 1/4 cup diced jalapenos and it was incredible!
