Jalapeño Cornbread Muffins

Garlic and cheddar cheese would also be great additions to these hearty little corn muffins.

Hey, corn might not even be such a bad idea, either.

These little muffins will add a nice spicy little kick to any meal.  Maybe as a side to tacos, or a hot bowl of chili, or barbeque chicken…the options are endless.  Spread them with a little melting butter, or dip in a little olive oil.  There are many ways to enjoy these.

2 tsp baking powder

3/4 tsp salt

1 c milk

1 egg

1 1/2 Tbsp jalapeño peppers, diced

Servings: 12

Heat oven to 400oF.  Sift together flours, corn meal, salt, and baking powder.  In a separate bowl, mix milk, yogurt, egg, and peppers.  Combine dry and wet ingredients.  Drop by spoonful into greased 12-cup muffin pan.  Lightly sprinkle paprika over the top of each muffin.  Bake for 20 minutes, or until golden brown and a toothpick comes cleanly out of the center of each muffin.  Enjoy!
