Cajun Beer Bread

Cajun Beer Bread is spicy beer bread, wonderful to serve with chili or red beans and rice. If you’re looking for a beer bread that has that extra zip to it, this bread is for you. Made extra special with diced onions, canned chopped green chilies, garlic, creole seasoning along with cayenne pepper what more can you ask for?!


When making any beer bread, use a hearty beer. Perferably one that is dark, malty and on the foamy side. Since it’s the yeast that helps the bread rise, a good, hearty beer works best, thus resulting in a better beer bread. Another suggestion I have, room temperature beer seems to work the best, for me. These are all just personal suggestions. Tips of the trade so to speak, that have worked for me. Some recipes will also call for using stale beer, beer that has sat out opened overnight. One more thing, leave the “light” beer for drinking. Make Cajun Beer Bread with a hearty dark beer such as a Guinness .
