Jalapeno Cornbread Muffins

Uncategorized Sep 25, 2020

I believe cornbread should get a spicy kick in the pants. It wears it well, and let me tell you, cornbread doesn’t need a holiday to be in fashion. And so it is with cornbread muffins. I revel in portion control and I use my baking tins for this purpose.  These muffins go well with soup, salad and chili and are good all on their own. They are so easy to make and they freeze well, so there is no excuse to always have them around.
