Mexicorn Muffins Recipe

"I use bacon, jalapeno pepper and a few other favorite items to put a different twist on a corn muffin mix," explains Judy Foley, Ridgeway, Virginia. "The moist bites complement a breakfast of scrambled eggs. They freeze well, too, but with my household of three guys, I can't keep them in the freezer for very long," she adds.
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 20 min. Bake: 15 min. YIELD:12 servings

Ingredients

  • 1 package (8-1/2 ounces) corn bread/muffin mix

  • 1/2 cup sour cream
  • 3 bacon strips, cooked and crumbled
  • 2 tablespoons chopped seeded jalapeno pepper
