Reviews for Red Pepper Jalapeno Muffins
"These were very good. Made as-is as an accompaniment to white chicken chili."
"These are excellent. We ate them with a tortillini soup."
"These are great! They're barely more work than the ol' boxed cornmuffins, but so much tastier. They look impressive and are wonderfully moist."
