1 tsp. salt
1 cup warm water
1 package dry yeast

In large bowl, combine flour, cheese, jalapenos and salt; mix well.

In separate bowl, combine water, yeast and sugar. Let sit 10 minutes then stir until the yeast is dissolved.

Add the oil to the liquid mixture, stirring. Add half the liquid mixture to the flour mixture and mix with your hands. Add remaining liquid and mix well.

Turn onto a floured surface and knead by hand until elastic and smooth. (about 15 min)

Place in a large oiled bowl, cover with a towel and let stand in a warm place for 1 hour.

Punch dough down and divide into three equal portions. Place into 8.5" x 4.5" loaf pans and allow to rise another 45 minutes.
