These cornbread muffins are amazing!
They have a Latin twist: jalapeño pepper that I cannot resist with sharp cheddar cheese.
The rest is cornbread, which I crave every time I hear the word "fall".
You can literally make them in half hour including the preparation of all ingredients and the baking time.
My children love them with honey for breakfast or as a snack.
They make the perfect side dish for a dinner with meat…
I love them to pair with a good bowl of lentil soup.
