I also have a yummy recipe to share with y'all today!! Are you a fan of Jalapeno Poppers? If you are then you're going to love these Jalapeno Popper Cornbread Muffins. These tasty little muffins have everything you love about traditional jalapeno poppers, but in a mini corn muffin form.
When it comes entertaining a variety of appetizers is always a must. Do you like to get together with friends and have an awards viewing party? Well, if you do these Jalapeno Popper Muffins are the perfect little appetizer for entertaining. I highly recommend doubling the batch, so there's plenty to go around.
Trust me everyone is going to love these. For the jalapeno popper muffins I used a package of Martha White's Sweet Yellow Cornbread Mix, and packed them full of cheddar cheese, cream cheese, and jalapeno peppers. If you want them a little spicier you could always use Martha Whites Mexican Cornbread. Let's get started and I'll show you how super simple these popper muffins are to make.
Prepare the cornbread mix according to package directions, adding the milk and egg. Using a wooden spoon lightly mix to combine. Add the chopped jalapenos and shredded cheddar cheese to the batter, and mix until blended.
Using a one inch cookie scoop or a spoon, add one tablespoon of cornbread batter to to each mini muffin cup. Press one cream cheese cube into the batter, and cover with additional batter until the muffin cups are 2/3 full. Bake 12 - 15 minutes or until the muffins are cooked through and lightly golden brown on top. Cool in pan 10 minutes, then using a small offset spatula loosen the edges and remove muffins.
Serve warm and enjoy!!!
