While visiting a local Mexican restaurant, I sampled a spicy corn muffin with a surprising sweetness. This recipe is a result of numerous attempts to re-create that treat using convenient mixes. These moist muffins are tasty with Mexican dishes, chili and soup.

Marg Ogden of Palmerton, Pennsylvania jazzes up corn bread mix with salsa, corn, cheese and liquid smoke to create these spicy muffins. The moist morsels are an ideal accompaniment to chili or a Southwestern supper.
THESE UNIQUE ROLLS are tender, light and delicious, with a bit of chili tang. The zip and texture inspire requests for the recipe every time I serve them.
For a fun change of pace, I'll sometimes use blue cornmeal when I make these.
