While visiting a local Mexican restaurant, I sampled a spicy corn muffin with a surprising sweetness. This recipe is a result of numerous attempts to re-create that treat using convenient mixes. These moist muffins are tasty with Mexican dishes, chili and soup. -Melissa Cook, Chico, California

Ingredients

  • 1 package (8-1/2 ounces) cornbread/muffin mix
  • 1 package (9 ounces) yellow cake mix
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1/2 cup 2% milk
  • 1/3 cup water
  • 2 tablespoons canola oil
  • 1 can (4 ounces) chopped green chilies, drained
  • 1 cup shredded cheddar cheese, divided

Directions

  1. In a large bowl, combine cornbread and cake mixes. In another bowl, combine the eggs, milk, water and oil. Stir into the dry ingredients just until moistened. Add chilies and 3/4 cup cheese.
  2. Fill greased or paper-lined muffin cups two-thirds full. Bake at 350° for 20-22 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean. Immediately sprinkle with remaining cheese. Cool for 5 minutes before removing from pans to wire racks. Serve warm.
