Jalapeno Cheddar Cornbread Muffins

Jodies Kitchen Jalapeno Cheddar Cornbread Muffins




Don't worry if you don't like jalapenos just leave them out!
 
You will still have a delicious cheddar cheese muffin!
 
If you want just a basic cornbread muffin recipe,then by all means leave out the cheddar and the jalapeno and you still have a spectacular cornbread muffin.
 
This recipe is a version of my Sweet Cornbread Muffins.The ingredients are the same except I omit the sugar and I switch the amount of flour and corn meal mix,so that these have a little more texture than the sweet version.
 
You also have the option with this recipe to add more jalapeno if you wish or leave your seeds in. I take mine out,and one jalapeno is just perfect for us. My little guy can handle the heat in these muffins just fine. 
 
 
We eat these with a variety of dishes, but of course they are made more during the winter when I am making soups and stews.
I recommend you try my Chili Beans with these, they goes so well together.
 
This isn't a fussy recipe and I have never made it once where it didn't turn out right,so even though it is all from scratch I think even the novice of bakers will have success with this. If you ask me how many muffins this will make, then I would have to tell you, it all depends on the size of your muffin tin. I have all different sizes and normally have two tins ready to use for this recipe. These can also be made in the mini muffin tins,just keep a eye out so you don't over bake.
 
GOOD LUCK!
