Southwestern Chili-Cheese Corn Muffins
This inventive muffin is sweet, spicy, and crunchy all at once.
Why This Recipe Works
This corn muffin recipe is the perfect companion to a bowl of chili. Following basic muffin-making protocol—combining the dry ingredients in one bowl, wet ingredients in another, and finally folding the ingredients together until just barely combined—made the Southwestern Chili-Cheese Corn Muffins light and tender. The sour cream kept the corn muffins moist and accented the flavor of the cheese in the recipe. Cayenne pepper and a seeded and minced jalapeño chile added a bit of heat and cut through the richness of the cheese.
