Cheese and Jalapeno Focaccia Bread

“The most delicious bread I have ever made, and surprisingly easy. You can top with onions, rosemary, or other herbs spices and cheeses for a variation. I like to double the jalapeno's and use jarred old el paso peppers because they are my favorite. If you cut it in half and put sandwich meat and veggies in the middle its a supper to die for.”
