Welcome to Simple Fare, Fairly Simple. This is a place for me to post recipes of all kinds...along with other miscellaneous fodder from my so-called life here in the south. Who knows what you will find here. Could be anything from my husband...known as IT Guy...to my kids and beautiful grandbabies that are growing up way too fast right before my eyes.

Mexican Cheese Bread

As you know...we love soup year 'round in the SFFS house. I normally like to serve some kind of bread with our soup so I'm always looking for ways to jazz it up a little bit. So when I made a yummy enchilada soup not long ago, I wanted a bread to match it. A little spice...a little cheese. This bread is SO good! If you're not a fan of cilantro, and I know lots of people are not...just leave it out. A few diced green chilies sprinkled on would be really good or if you're the brave type, throw on some sliced jalapenos for extra heat. Super yummy, guys!

1 loaf french bread ~ sliced in half horizontally
1/2 cup mayonnaise
