Savory Corn and Pepper Muffins

This week Rebecca of Ezra Pound Cake (click to find the recipe) selected the Savory Corn Muffin for our recipe. These muffins, like all of Dorie's muffin recipes I have tried, were quick easy and delicious.

In addition, these are festive to look at! Being a total spice wimp I substituted another sweet pepper for the jalapeno. Most of the other bakers declared that their muffins had just a hint of heat from the jalapeno they used and many planned to add more jalapenos the next time they tried this one. But, I know my taste buds - they can't handle the heat - so I was glad I elected to avoid the possibility of too much heat and will stick with the sweet peppers instead.

The muffins were a great side to my chili which I just happened to make late last week. I will definitely make these muffins again. To see the myriad other chillies the group made to serve with these muffins, visit the many other TWD baker's blogs. Chili did seem to be the vehicle of choice to accompany this tasty muffin - great minds apparently not only bake alike, we make the same accompanying dishes as well! There were many other companion dishes made, of course, and when I make these muffins the next time, I think I'll visit a few of these TWD bakers to get some inspiration for my main course!

Never heard anyone call themselves a "spice wimp" before. Awwwww. These were sooooo good with chili, though. Nice job.
