TWD Savory Muffins

 

Looking forward to a change of pace, this weeks recipe from EZRA POUND CAKE was corn and pepper muffins.  Many comments suggested that this would be a perfect partner to Chili.  Having never made either, I thought, why not? 

The muffins were a cinch to put together, but because hubby and the toddlers aren't fans of spicy foods, I left out the jalapeno (boo hoo...I LOVE hot food!) and was sorely missed.  There was just something missing (ahem - the jalapeno!!) and next I would DEFINITELY not leave it out. 

Sorry - had to include this to prove that I can cook and keep a relatively clean counter =)

They did go well with the Chili though, so thanks all for the great tip!!

I love heat too! I didn't think they were too spicy really even with the jalapeno - but someone who doesn't want that heat would probably notice it! Maybe next time you could divide the batter and just add in a bit of the pepper! :) Looks awesome and great job at keeping a clean counter!

I skipped the jalapeno, too for the sake of the kids. And then, of course, they didn't want any. They were really good though, and a perfect match for the chili.

Ha!!! You keep a much better counter than I do! Your muffins looks fantastic... and next time, add the jalapenos! I love me some spicy food!

These were wonderful! I did the "playing around" version and threw in a glob of sour cream. They were delicious! I might have to try the full flavored version next time!

Great job!!!!

I took out the heat too.

They were fabulous.

I'm making them again tonight.

I love spicy foods, to and I also left out the jalapeno and regretted it. I'm glad you liked them with the chili.

I don't like really hot foods, so I left out the jalapeño and didn't miss it. I'm looking forward to summer when we grow our own milder jalapeños -- good flavor and only a touch of heat, perfect for wimps like me! If you can find any at a market, do try them.

I paired mine with chili as well, I was just not smart enough to get a picture of them together!

Great looking muffins. Im glad you enjoyed them. I thought they rocked!

How brave of you to try two new recipes at the same time! They look like they were both great. I am a scaredy-cat when it comes to hot foods but I left everything as is (used canned corn) and they were not too spicy for me at all; hope you get to try them that way soon.

I skipped the hot pepper as well. Wouldn't have hurt to have it in.

Jayne said...

I'm with you on the hot food thing - I'm thinking next time of habaneros instead of the red bell pepper. Just for fun.

Great job!

You keep a much cleaner kitchen counter than me, fuh sho. These were so good with chili. And the jalapeno was pretty time. They might not have noticed ...

They look great! I only used half of a jalapeno and I didn't think they were hot at all. I'd use a whole one next time.

Gigi said...

These sound great!

PS the chili looks delicious as well.

Also left out the hot stuff, but the muffins were really good anyway. Yours look perfect.
