Black Bean Corn Muffins

READY IN: 25mins
Recipe by Julesong

These muffins are based on the Black Bean Fritters that I learned how to make during class at Culinary Communion (which are one of my favorite luxury fried foods to snack on). Since some folks were concerned about the deep frying of the fritters, I decided to make them into a baked muffin form, instead. I'm happy to say that they are equally as delicious and much more healthful as muffins! I made a quick-to-prepare version this first time, with a Jiffy mix, but will be making a from-scratch version in the future.

Top Review by Heavens Kitchen

These were good, but I agree with another reviewer that they seem to be missing something. I do think diced green chiles or jalapenos would be good in this. After tasting the first batch, I added in some chili powder to the second batch, and that seemed to help some with the flavor. I think the other reviewers suggestion of cumin might be nice, too. Oh, and I also added in a handful of shredded cheese. I'll definitely make these again. I'll just season the batter a bit more next time. These went great with Recipe #104086!
