Nacho Cheese Beer Bread

Nacho Cheese Beer Bread

Yield: 2 loaves 1x
Prep: 25 minutesCook: 35 minutesTotal: 1 hour


Vegetable shortening to grease two loaf pans

4 cups self-rising flour

2 tablespoons baking powder

3 tablespoons granulated sugar

1 1-ounce packet taco seasoning

1 cup sharp white shredded cheddar cheese, divided

1 cup shredded Monterey jack cheese, divided

1 8ounce bag Doritos (I used nacho cheese flavor)

1/4 cup cilantro leaves

2 tablespoons jalapeno, chopped

4 scallion stalks, whites and greens

1 8.6ounce can Bush’s chili beans (I used Southern Pit BBQ flavor)

1 12ounce bottle beer

1/4 cup water

10 jalapeno slices, to top the bread

Cream cheese, for serving


Grease two standard size 8 ½ X 4 ½ inch loaf pans with vegetable shortening or butter. Set aside.

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.

In a large bowl, mix flour, baking powder, sugar and taco seasoning.

Pull out two tablespoons from each of the shredded cheese to use to top the bread and pour the rest into the flour mixture and toss to coat the cheese. You should have ¼ cup total of cheese reserved for bread tops.

Place the Doritos in a food processor and run the mixer until the Doritos are into crumbs, about a minute or less. Add to the flour mix and toss to combine.

Place the cilantro, chopped jalapeno and scallions in the food processor and pulse to chop fine.

Pour in the Bush’s beans (including liquid) and pulse again to chop the beans into pieces but do not puree.

Pour this into the flour mixture along with the beer and water and mix to combine. The mixture will be thick.

Divide the batter between the two prepared loaf pans and smooth the top surfaces as smooth as possible then sprinkle the mixed cheese on each.

Place five jalapeno slices over each loaf then bake for 35 minutes or until a tooth pick inserted into the center comes out clean. Start checking at the 30-minute mark.

Cool in the pans for five minutes, then run a knife along the edges and invert each onto a cooling rack face up to cool completely.

Can be eaten warm or room temperature and with cream cheese if desired.
