Red Pepper Jalapeno Muffins Recipe

Red Pepper Jalapeno Muffins Recipe

These moist, spicy muffins boast as much flavor as color. They go great with soups and salads, says Agnes Ward of Stratford, Ontario. Substitute a can of chopped green chilies for the jalapenos for less heat.
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 20 min. Bake: 20 min. YIELD:12 servings

Ingredients

  • 1-1/2 cups all-purpose flour

  • 1. In a large bowl, combine the first six ingredients. In another bowl, combine the egg, milk and sour cream. Stir into dry ingredients just until moistened. Fold in the cheese, red peppers and jalapenos. Coat muffin cups with cooking spray; fill three-fourths full with batter.
