“This is absolutely the best pepper cheese bread recipe I have ever found. It came from Betty Crocker years ago when they did their recipe boxes back in the 70's. It is baked in 1 lb. coffee cans. My mom had the lime green recipe box when I was a kid, but lost it. Betty Crocker was kind enough to find me the actual recipe card for this and sent it to me. So enjoy!”
