Biscuit-y Bell Pepper Muffins

I like to use three or four different colors of pepper for these easy muffins. When you cut one open, it looks like a rainbow!—Rachel Garcia, Arlington, Virginia

    The overall texture was good, but around the the onions and peppers it was slimy.

    Good, but taste best the second day. Used half the butter and increased veggies to 1 cup.

    These look and sound delightful. I am inclined to try these with cornmeal. MMM

    This recipe is incredibly easy to make and tastes so good, I tend to make a triple batch as it vanishes very, very fast. It's delicious and my family absolutely loves it.
