 Southwestern Savory Muffins
When I was first married, I found a muffin recipe that called for bacon. I modified it through the years and came up with this recipe. It's become a favorite breakfast treat for my husband and me. He grew up in northern New Mexico and thinks most foods benefit from the addition of green chilies.
