Mini Jalapeno Popper Muffins & {Giveaway has Ended}

Jalapenos, cheddar cheese, and cream cheese baked inside mini cornbread muffins. Everything you love about traditional Jalapeno Poppers in a corn muffin form. 
Hi everyone! Today I'm sharing my second post for Martha White and The Country Music Association. I've been in a rush trying to get my latest post on the blog, because time is running out to enter their fabulous contest. Martha White wants to send one of you to the to the 49th Annual Country Music Awards in Nashville, TN. The CMA Awards air live from the Bridgestone Arena on Wednesday, November 4th at 8/7 CST on ABC. 

I'm so excited that in 45 days (not that I'm counting LOL) I will be attending the CMA Awards live for a behind the scenes look at Country Musics Biggest Night™.  I would love for one of you to join me, so stop by Martha White's Facebook Page and enter daily for a chance to win a trip for two. 

Time is running out, so hurry, you only have until September 30th 2015 at 11:59 pm (ET) to enter. You can also click here for a list of the recently announced nominees for the CMA Awards. My fingers are crossed that Luke Bryan will win Entertainer of the year, so we shall see.


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.

To start you'll need to gather all your ingredients together. This recipe only requires 6 ingredients. You'll need one packet Martha White sweet yellow or yellow cornbread mix, milk, one egg, 2-3 fresh jalapenos, shredded Cheddar or Colby-Jack cheese, and cream cheese. That's it like I said super simple my friends.  

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!!!

My favorite is the Mexican style cornbread. We always add whole kernel corn to the cornbread. It comes out so moist.

I've never tried your mixes, I usually make from scratch.....I will have to look for them at my local store. I think I will try the buttermilk one first! They would be a worth having on hand.

Hi...I love all the Martha White products. I guess if I have to pick a favorite cornbread it would be the Jalapeno muffins.

My mothers name was Martha White so it always brings me a little closer to her when I use these products. She was a fantastic cook and used Martha White's products as well.

Love the blog...God bless.

I love the sweet yellow corn bread mix. My grandma made the best cornbread ( among other things haha) and her secret was adding sugar to the mix. This reminds me of her cornbread in the ease of a package. Keep up the good work!!!
