Sante Fe Chili Bread

This fun loaf of bread is sponsored by Red Star Yeast, and I am happy 
to give you my honest opinions about the entire delicious process.

Just in time for Cinco de Mayo, I came across a recipe for Santa Fe Chili Bread on the Red Star Yeast website. After I read the list of ingredients, I was hooked. The list included cornmeal, chili powder, and (are you ready for this?) refried beans! 

How could you not try something like that?

Fresh out of the oven


This tasty bread would be a perfect complement to any Mexican-themed meal, especially to one on your Cinco de Mayo menu. It's hearty but soft, and has the perfect touch of southwestern flavor. 


Delicious all on it's own, it also made incredible grilled cheese sandwiches. 

The next day, I cut a couple of thick slices into cubes and toasted them for the best taco salad topping ever.

  2. Interesting. Would never occur to me to include refried beans or chili powder in bread. Could be interesting. Found on Let's Get Real party.

  4. Looking at the bread I would never think there was refried beans in it. It's off, but the bread looks delicious. I like the chili powder and cornmeal. Thanks for sharing this with us at the Let's Get Real Link Party. Have a wonderful weekend.

  28. Wow, very curious about the beans in this one. You see them used in brownies and that sort of thing, but I wouldn't imagine them translating well to a yeast bread. Interesting! Looks like you achieved a beautiful texture here. I'll definitely have to try this. :) [#TastyTuesdays]

  30. Umm, Joy, this looks AMAZING, and I'm kind of blown away that there are refried beans in this bread recipe. What a fun and funky addition, and I bet it makes the bread super moist and delicious, too!

    This was one of my favorite recipes shared during last week's That's Fresh Friday link-up! I'll be sharing it at my blog on Thursday. Thanks so much for sharing, and keep up the great cooking!

  31. Just when I thought the chile powder was interesting, you threw in the refried beans! And to top it off, you made grilled cheese with it. Yum!

  34. This sounds really good. It's amazing how beans can be used in baked goods. My daughter makes a very fudgy brownie that uses kidney beans instead of flour. It is soooo good! Thank you for sharing at What We Accomplished Wednesdays. Have a great week!
