Cheesy Salsa Bread Mix

Make this with your bread machine, stand-type mixer, or by hand.

SKU: M86-1

Can I use this mix in my 1 pound capacity or 1.5 pound capacity bread machine?

We have designed our mixes specifically for 2 lb. capacity machines. However, you may still find success with 1.5 lb. capacity machines. You may expect to see the top of the loaf touch the lid of the machine towards the end of the baking cycle. This may lead to imperfect baking in that one spot on the loaf. The rest of the loaf should be fine. For 1 lb. bread machines, we recommend only running the bread on the dough cycle and then transfer the dough to a pan for baking in a conventional oven. See packaging for more info.

Why do the directions ask me to use a thermometer?

Yeast is very sensitive to heat and other environmental factors. We have tested and designed our mixes to find the sweet spot for yeast activity to get the best rise. Even just a few degrees off on water temperature can make a big impact on the quality of your bread. Measuring the temperature of your water accurately is the best way to ensure consistently successful bread baking.

I followed the directions exactly and I see had a problem with my bread? What can I do?

Sometimes bread issues happen. We are happy to help. Send us a picture of your bread and a picture of the back packaging of your bread mix to our customer support email at Include as much detail as possible about your baking process and bread machine model so we can troubleshoot the cause of the issue.

Should I adjust my mix for high altitudes?

We don't recommend making any changes to the mix for high altitudes. We have tested our mixes in a variety of locations and have fine tuned each mix to be the best product possible.

I don't have a bread machine or a stand-type mixer. Can I still make this bread in my oven?

  • It has salsa - made with the fresh taste of tomatoes, peppers, onions, and cilantro.
  • Loaded with plenty of real cheese.
  • Makes a perfect crunchy toast or chewy bread for soup or sandwiches
  • Makes perfect bread in all popular 1 1/2 to 2-pound bread machines--or in your oven.


This is a very different kind of bread - look what's in it.

This is a full-bodied bread with just a touch of fire. make great sandwiches with this bread--like a grilled cheese sandwich. Serve it with a meal. We love it in the morning with eggs and bacon. 

See what you can make with this bread!

"Yummy yummy!!! My Mama and I adore this bread!  Nan Spawr-Seaton

"Great flavor. Flavorful and slightly spicy. Excellent with food like Turkey chili." 
Valerie Larsen 
"Haven't met a person who doesn't like this bread." 

"My husband LOVES this bread. It has a little 'kick' but is not what I consider 'hot'. My husband likes hot stuff, and I do not, but we both enjoyed this bread. It is more flavor than kick. We could taste the tomatoes and mild spices which are balanced very nicely by the cheese." Lisa Riley

"I just made this bread yesterday and it was gone in less than an hour. I wish I would have ordered more. This is now our favorite bread!"  Leslie Howell

"This is terrific bread. Wonderful toasted and great for grilled cheese sandwiches! We highly recommend it!"  Connie Adams
