Hoasie Rolls (New Mexico Style)

2 cups flour, 1/2 cup shredded cheddar cheese, 1/4 tsp salt, 1 pkg yeast or 2 1/4 tsp yeast in a jar, 3-5 tablespoons chopped green chile, ( I used fresh roasted and peeled chile), 2 1/2 tsp sugar, 1 cup warm water, 1/2 tsp onion powder, 1/2 tsp garlic powder, 3 tbls veggie oil, or olive oil.

Fill a large mixing bowl with hot water to warm the bowl. Pre heat your oven to 350 degrees. I pre measure everything in small bowls to have it all ready. Dump hot water out of the bowl, put one cup warm water
(between 110 -115 degrees) in the pre warmed bowl, add yeast and salt, stir gently to dissolve yeast. Let this sit for about two minutes. Add sugar, gently stir, add seasonings, stir again, add green chile and cheddar cheese, stir until well mixed. Start adding flour, I add about a quarter cup at a time and continue to mix, keep adding flour until bread starts to form. Knead 20 times to mix all flour into the mixture. Grab a cast iron skillet, add 3 tbls oil to the skillet and warm it up, just to the point it is warm to the touch. Form 9 golf ball sized rolls, roll them once over in the oil in the skillet and place an even distance apart in the skillet. Cover with a tea towel and let the rise 30 to 40 minutes. Bake at 350 for 30 to 35 minutes. These are excellent with a pot of stew or a bowl of beans! Enjoy!
