Mexicorn Muffins

Rated as 4.58 out of 5 Stars

"'I use bacon, jalapeno pepper and a few other favorite items to put a different twist on a corn muffin mix,' explains Judy Foley, Ridgeway, Virginia. 'The moist bites complement a breakfast of scrambled eggs. They freeze well, too, but with my household of three guys, I can't keep them in the freezer for very long,' she adds."

I followed the recipe pretty much exactly (although I left out the jalapenos), and these were a big hit. The recipe made 16 muffins when I filled the muffin cups 3/4 full, but they didn't rise ...

AWESOME!! Delicious corn bread muffins! I made them two nights in a row- once with chicken enchiladas and the next night with chicken tortilla soup. I left out the bacon and peppers. A defin...

So delicious!!! I didn't have any cornmeal or muffin mix so I used pieces of a muffin mix recipe as follows: 2 cups flour, 3 tsp baking powder, 1/2 tsp salt, and 1/2 cup sugar. I found the mu...

I'd give the recipe five stars for taste but am giving them only four stars due to the excessive moisture. The muffins were so moist that they didn't want to release from the paper muffin cups....

followed the recipe exactly except put in baking dish not muffins. These were very good. Moist and so so tasty.

WOW holy cow these are good! I wish your main picture showed them in the muffin pans as they really look when made. I didn't add bacon, because we were serving these with home made beef chili. B...
