I actually am usually not one for spicy food. That changes when the weather gets colder though! I love the way the spice warms my body and comforts my soul. So when it comes to spicy peppers I always turn to the wonderful jalapeno since they are still fairly mild and pair well with so many flavors. This weekend I used them in amazing cheddar jalapeno corn muffins for a great breakfast treat! They were so simple to make too.
When I tried one my taste buds went nuts. The jalapeno made them have heat without being assertive. The cornmeal and cheddar cheese gave them so much substance and texture. The best part was that they worked any time of day. I had them for breakfast with a strong cup of coffee, and then I had them on the side of chili for dinner! The leftovers kept well in a sealed container for two days. I hope you all enjoy this warm and satisfying treat! xoxo
