Just made these to serve with my Mexican themed dinner for tonight and I ate 2 right out of the oven! So easy to make and the best jalape?o corn muffin I have ever had. Just spicy enough with the jalape?os and the smoky cumin flavor. Next time I might melt some cheddar or pepper jack cheese on top right at the end of baking. Delicious with butter! Thanks for the wonderful recipe!
