Featuring three types of peppers and a hint of basil, these tender muffins are perfect with chicken. I trimmed down the original recipe to make them low in fat and cholesterol. -Karen Shipp of San Antonio, Texas

"I can't stick to a recipe, not even the first time. In addition to what the recipe called for I added onion and garlic. Half of the batch I added shredded cheese to. THEY ARE AWESOME!! Thanks for the base recipe!"
