Jalapeno Cheddar Corn Muffins Video

Jalapeno Cheddar Corn Muffins – The simple corn muffin is a beautiful thing.  That is if you make it correctly. In this video, we try to make Jalapeno Cheddar Corn Muffins with Jiffy corn muffin mix and it does not turn out very well in our first attempt. It was too dry, I only put one egg in the mix and the oven was not hot enough.

1st attempt Jalapeno Cheddar Corn Muffins

The first batch was so bad that I had to run out to Whole Foods and buy pre-made corn bread for our dinner. It was good cornbread, but I was disappointed in my “baking skills”.

So, in our 2nd attempt (in a segment we call “Charlie’s Citchen Calamities”, we fix our mistakes. The batter was moister. I had the correct number of eggs (1 egg per box). The result was perfect Jalapeno Cheddar Corn Muffins.

You can serve these muffins as a side dish with Jambalaya and then eat any leftovers at breakfast the next morning. They are topped with shredded sharp cheddar and filled with chopped jalapeños. The flavor combination is a perfect match.


Make sure you scrape out the jalapeño seeds and then chop the pepper. They’ve got great texture, thanks to the cornmeal, are salty and nutty, due to the cheddar, and have just the right amount of kick from the jalapeño. And some really tasty Jalapeno Cheddar Corn Muffins.
