Monkey Bread

Ok, Okay.  I know it doesn’t sound very western or very country.  But stay with me on this, as the story is a pretty interesting one.

This recipe dates back (as best I can find via the internet) to 1945.  And was later served in the White House by Nancy Reagan in the 1980s.  By adding a few other ingredients, this yeast bread could very well become a sticky bun or honey bun. Or, our all too famous Cinnamon Bun. 😀 mmm

This was a favorite among pioneers and cowboys alike.  Requiring little ingredients and mostly time, this is sure to be a hit at any round-up and easily adapted for Dutch Oven purposes.

Onto the Monkey Business

Not all chili’s are created equal.  There are some pretty hot ones out there.  So for this recipe, make sure you know your chili peppers before you buy them.

Chili peppers that are hot are easy to spot and those that are mild are even easier.

Know your chili peppers
