Green Chile Cornbread Muffins – moist corn muffins packed full of green chiles and lots of flavor. Perfect with cool weather soups and stews!
Nothing compliments a bowl of chili more than cornbread, right? Yesterday, I made 5 batches of chili for some of my neighbors. Since I made an extra batch for my family, I decided to make some cornbread muffins to go with it.
As I was looking around my pantry, I found a few extra cans of green chilies. Since typically I add jalapenos and then my kids all claim, “their mouth is on fire”, I knew that the green chilies would be a safer choice. Sure enough, all three of my kids ate their cornbread, and I didn’t hear anyone say they were too spicy. Win!!
Moist, fluffy, and flavorful cornbread muffins with bits of green chiles in every bite! The perfect complement to any meal!
These muffins freeze great too, so make a batch and freeze the leftover muffins for another night! If you prefer to cut pieces of cornbread rather than have muffins, you can make this in a greased 8×8 baking pan.
