Jalapeno Ranch Pull-Apart Bread

Jalapeno Ranch Pull-Apart Bread is the cheesiest, most delicious pull-apart bread with a KICK that you will ever try!


  • 1 bread bowl - sourdough or french works great
  • 1 1/2 cups shredded sharp cheddar cheese I recommend shredding your own
  • 3 jalapenos seeded and chopped thinly
  • 1/2 cup butter melted
  • 1/2 packet hidden valley ranch dressing MIX the spice packet
  • ranch dressing for dipping optional


  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Place parchment paper on top a flat baking sheet, and place bread bowl on the center. Cut the bread bowl in 1/2 inch slices, being careful not to slice all the way through the bread. Then cut 1/2 inch slices going the opposite direction (think checkerboard), again, being careful not to cut through the bread all the way.

  2. Stuff cheese into the pockets of the bread, pushing down into pockets. Add jalapenos and push down into pockets; try to distribute evenly.

  3. In a small bowl, mix melted butter with ranch seasoning, whisk to combine. Drizzle the mixture over the top of the bread, trying to spread it as best as possible.

  4. LOOSELY cover the bread with foil, being careful not to press the foil down (you do not want the foil touching the bread/cheese). Place into oven and bake for 15 minutes.

  5. Remove foil from the top of the bread, then place back into the oven for 5 minutes.

  6. Remove from oven and serve immediately with ranch dressing for dipping.
