Jalapeno Cornbread Muffins

Are you a cornbread fan? I LOVE a good cornbread, but in my opinion there are lots of things that it has to include in order to be delicious! It must have jalapeno because I need the spice. It must have cheese in it so its nice and salty and it must have real pieces of corn!! Don’t give me that cornbread powder mix with no extra pizzazz!

Good news?! These have ALL that 🙂 They’re a little sweet, a little spicy and super cheesy!! So darn delicious! You can make these as a beautiful side for thanksgiving or make them a couple days before and use the leftovers as a base for some cornbread stuffing!! How delicious would that be?! Either way, just make ’em because they’re delish!
