Cheesy Jalapeño Cornbread Muffins - The Produce Moms

Cheesy cornbread with a jalapeño kick…this heavenly combo is as devilishly good as it sounds! These cornbread muffins are the perfect accompaniment to a bowl of warm chili or a plate of your favorite barbecue. 

Cheesy Jalapeno Cornbread Muffins

Cornbread is easier served as muffins, especially for large family dinners or potlucks. They would make a great addition to any holiday table!

Say goodby to dense, dry cornbread. These muffins are soft, fluffy, and flavorful. The jalapeño, while adding a nice kick, is not overwhelming. If you’d prefer more heat, simply leave a few jalapeño seeds rather than deseeding them all.

These muffins have enough flavor just as they are. However, you might prefer yours served with a drizzle of honey or a dab of butter.
