Jalapeno Cheddar Cheese Corn Muffins

After a tour of Las Vegas we are now back to regularly scheduled programming.  As a special treat I have a real winner for you. These muffins are fantastic.

We overindulged a lot in Las Vegas. Mr. J and I decided once back we would cut back on the amount of rich food we consume. At least for a little bit.

These muffins are very flavorful.  With sharp cheddar cheese and the bite from the jalapenos your taste buds will be having a party in your mouth.

We had these as a side with a taco salad. Instead of having lots of tortilla chips we had a muffin.  They added so much to the meal, making it filling and satisfying for Mr. J while still having a salad.

These are best served the day of but we heated them quickly in microwave the next to serve with eggs at breakfast.
