This delicious spicy cheesy beer bread would be great with any hot soup recipe or with a main dish. Make it as spicy as you like!

1 3/4 cups all-purpose flour
1 3/4 cups whole wheat flour
3 tablespoons sugar
1 tablespoons baking powder
1 1/2 teaspoon salt
4 ounces Mozzarella cheese, cut into small cubes
2 tablespoons to 1/2 cup jalapeños, finely chopped
1 12-ounce bottle beer
1 egg, lightly beaten, for brushing on bread

Step 1: Preheat oven to 375 degrees.
Step 2: In a large bowl, combine the flour, sugar, baking powder and salt.
Step 3: Stir in the cheese and chopped jalapeños, then pour in the beer and stir until just combined, the dough will be stiff and dry.
Step 4: Turn onto a very lightly floured surface and knead for several turns, then shape the bread into a nice ball shape.
Step 5: Place on a greased baking sheet and brush the top with the beaten egg.
Step 6: Bake at 375 degree for 50 minutes to 1 hour. Check the bread with a knife or toothpick to see if it is done. If it comes out clean bake another five minutes.

Step 7: Remove bread from baking sheet and place on a wire rack to cool for several minutes before slicing.

You may use any hot pepper of your choice
You can also use other cheese, such as cheddar, I used mozzarella because it is lower in fat.
