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.

Cayenne pepper lends a little zip to these crisp and cheesy treats from Camille Langford, Branson, Missouri. "They look and taste like they're a lot of trouble to make, but they're not. That's my favorite kind of recipe!" relates Camille.
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.
