	I can't give you too much advice about your
big lump of hard, hot stuff except to say that every
time I've tried esoteric recipes involving little water
I had at least one failure in the beginning.  (I remember
an absolutely *awful* experience with a lemon poppyseed
bread recipe that I got on the net.)
	The success that I had were basically due to
two things 1.) Very fresh and an adequate amount of yeast
and 2.) careful measurement of ingredients and settings
on the breadmaker.
	If you haven't used the breadmaker often (yet)
try sticking to more simple and, admittedly bland, recipes
like white and whole wheat. Once you've mastered these
the Jalapeno Bread will probably turn out much better...
