Growing up in Louisiana, I made cornbread for dinner just about every night. Now that I live in Dallas, Texas – the original cornbread recipe morphed into Jalapeno Cornbread Muffins!

With some pure and simple ingredients added . . . I’m making delicious, moist Jalapeno Cornbread Muffins with a little kick. The key ingredient, jalapenos are the official state pepper!

Here’s my favorite muffin tin!
