Garlic Chipotle Cheesy Bread

Remember my Garlic Chipotle Butter recipe? Well, a fellow blogger, Rachel of Rachel Cotterill, suggested using this on a garlic bread. I did, and it was the best suggestion ever! It rendered so much bread for just two people that I took it over and shared it with Kimi, LLS and LLJ.

Garlic Chipotle Cheesy Bread

While it was baking, it smelled AMAZING! I didn’t know if it was the garlic, the bourbon or the chipotle peppers, but I didn’t want the smell to leave my house! For those of you who think this will be spicy, it’s not. Heat yes, spicy, not really. My 10 year old nephew ate it and he wanted seconds. So the next time you’re looking to make some cheesy bread, look no further!

Print this recipe


  • 1 cup of shredded mozzarella cheese
  • 1 cup of shredded sharp cheddar cheese
  • 3/4 cup of scallions, chopped
  • 1 tablespoon of fresh Italian parsley, finely chopped + extra for sprinkling on top
  • 1/2 cup of mayonnaise
  • 2 tablespoons of sour cream
  • 6 tablespoons of garlic chipotle butter, softened
  • 1 loaf of ciabatta

Garlic Chipotle Cheesy Bread


In a large bowl combine cheese, scallions and 1 tablespoon of parsley. Stir in mayonnaise and sour cream. Then add the garlic chipotle butter and mix until everything is well combined.

Preheat the broiler. Line aluminum foil on a baking sheet/pan. Slice ciabatta bread in half horizontally and lay it crust side down on the baking sheet/pan. Spread the cheese mixture evenly over the bread and place it under the broiler until slightly brown, about 3-5 minutes.

Remove bread from the broiler and let it sit for 5 minutes or until cool enough to handle. Sprinkle the remaining chopped parsley on top, slice the bread and serve.

    Oh my gosh that looks so CHEESY!!! I’m drooling…if I had some of that now, I would have totally eaten it for breakfast (it’s only 9am here).

  2. Lisa says

    Oh my! I should have had this with my spaghetti on Sunday. Looks so scrumptious and tummy pleasing! Was Chris your hand model? Love the pics.

  3. says

    I’m pretty much done catching up on my veggies and I can count on you for something delicious and mouth-watering like this. Bread is another one of my weaknesses and my little one would chow this down for you quick! Yum yum!

    Haven’t try your recipe yet but they sure look good. Now what is muscovado sugar I just started to look at your recipe and I left a note on the sugar but didn’t know where to send it. I wanted to try your Garlic cheesy bread. Now what is chipotle? Keep up the good work and your picture of your food sure looks great.

      Muscovado sugar is a molasses sugar. You can always substitute for brown sugar. Chipotle pepper is a smoked jalapeno chile in a can. Now if you decide not to make the butter but you still want to make the bread, you can always just do garlic and butter together instead. Thanks for your lovely comment! :)

    What a wonderful appetizer for a party or cook-out! I’m so glad you mentioned that your 10-year old nephew enjoyed it, so that means my boys will probably love it too. So inspired, Anne, thanks for a wonderful recipe (and the garlic chipotle butter recipe too).

    With that chipotle butter and a mix of cheddar & mozzarella, I can see why this bread disappeared, Anne. Your pictures say it all. I have to remember to buy a can of chipotle when I’m at the market. :)

    This bread has SO much flavor. The “secret” ingredient, IMHO, is the bourbon and muscovado sugar. Yes, melted cheese is always good. Yeah, you can’t go wrong with a little heat. But as you start eating this you also taste that little sump’n sump’n that you can’t quite put your finger on. Now you know what it is. :-)

    Even more reason to make that Garlic Chipotle Butter (it’s been on my list since you first posted it), Anne! As you said – once you have these compound butters around, there are so many uses for them, and this one is truly inspired! Delicious!

  9. Jayne says

    Oh man. That cheese on top slays me! I’m interested that you used mayo on this too. I see a full meal with these bread.

  10. Juliana says

    Wow Anne, this bread loaded with cheese and a touch of spice just look delicious…so tempting.
    Hope you are having a fun week 😀

    So strange how we’ve been on the same wavelength lately! I made garlic bread a few days ago too! This version trumps that – this sounds and looks super tasty! It’s so creative.

  12. says

    Just imagining the wonderful smell as this cooked makes me wish I was your neighbor so you could have shared with me! I will have to make this myself….soon! Some might consider this an appetizer. I would eat this as a meal. :)
