    This recipe was also part of my chili bar I did for a party. I wanted regular corn muffins, but then I also wanted to try something a little different. I have had this recipe in my collection for quite some time but never tried it. I figured this was the perfect time! Let me tell ya, these have incredible flavor, and they are incredibly easy. I'm not sure I'll be able to have corn muffins the plain ol' way ever again.The party goers really enjoyed them too since they disappeared faster than the regular ones did!

    I made mini-muffins with this recipe and served them with The South in a Pot Soup (both recipes are in Feb/Mar 2017 TOH). Delightful combination!
