This week's Tuesdays with Dorie selection is the Savory Corn and Pepper Muffins. I was happy to be making something that wasn't so sweet for a change. The selection was made by Rebecca of Ezra Pound Cake. She'll have the recipe posted on her blog, and you'll also want to stop by her site to see all of the other fantastic treats she has posted.
I went into making this recipe expecting the final product to be pretty typical cornbread. I really like cornbread, so this thought excited me. However, as I added ingredients such as chili powder, jalapeno and red pepper, I knew it was going to be a bit different than basic cornbread. And WOW, it was very different than the cornbread you're probably used to.
I really loved how the flavors came together in this bread. The muffins had a tiny bit of a spicy kick and they tasted SO much better than any cornbread I've ever had. I REALLY enjoyed these and found them to be incredibly easy to make. I'll definitely be making these again - perhaps with a big bowl of chili next time. Yum!
