Cornbread, Jalapeno and Cheese Mini-Muffins


by Chef Randy

\If you’re looking for an appetizer that is easy to make and different, this may be the perfect appetizer. It has just the right flavor combination of cornbread, tiny jalapeno bites and sharp Cheddar cheese. That it’s made with buttermilk is an added flavor bonus.


1 cup cornmeal

1 cup flour ¼ cup sugar

¼ teaspoon salt

1½ teaspoons baking powder

¼ teaspoon baking soda

1 tablespoon jalapeno chilies (seeded and chopped fine)

⅔ cup sharp Cheddar cheese (grated)

1 cup buttermilk

¼ cup vegetable oil 1

large egg (slightly beaten)


Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Spray a mini-muffin pan with cooking spray.

Using a large mixing bowl, mix dry ingredients (cornmeal through Cheddar cheese) together. Add buttermilk, vegetable oil and egg and stir until well blended.

Pour into min-muffin pan. Bake for 10-12 minutes until a toothpick inserted into the center of one of the muffins comes out clean. Transfer to a wire rack to cool. Remove muffins, wipe out muffin pan, re-spray and refill with batter. Repeat until all batter is gone.

This recipe makes 24 minimuffins.

    Hey I know this is off topic but I was wondering if you knew of any
    widgets I could add to my blog that automatically tweet my newest
    twitter updates. I’ve been looking for a plug-in like this
    for quite some time and was hoping maybe you would have some experience with something like this.
    Please let me know if you run into anything.
    I truly enjoy reading your blog and I look forward to your new updates.

    naturally like your web-site but you have to take a look at the spelling on several of your posts.

    A number of them are rife with spelling issues and I in finding it very bothersome to tell the reality then again I
    will certainly come again again.

    I know I communicate a lot about classic games, especially NES game titles.
    I guess that’s because I spent the brunt of time working and growing high on these old consoles.
    By working, I mean working to conquer certain games, or get higher scores
    than my co-workers. So the NES has a tremendously special put into my heart and
    in my mind. I still buy up some old classic cartridges, and have absolutely my NES hooked up for time play.
    Even so also use my R4 DS card on my Nintendo DSi to able to to take my NES and retro gaming with me, due
    to the nesDS emulator for the DSi.
