      Very good flavor, quite tasty - not hot even with the 3 tbs. diced jalapenos. I doubled the real bacon bits. They weren't as light as the usual corn muffins; however, they were tender. I think next time I'll substitute sour cream for the buttermilk to get a more moist texture.

      YUM! YUM! YUM! I finally found a great recipe for blue cornmeal. These muffins were so tasty and easy to prepare. I used high quality store bought bacon bits. Real butter and jalapeno slices from a jar. OUTSTANDING! Will be making these often! Thanks Ellie! YaYa

      These have a nice texture and even with 2 jalapenos are very mild. Not having bacon bits, I cooked 2 slices of bacon until crisp and then crumbled into the batter. I also grated some sharp cheddar cheese and added to the batter. Definately will up the amount of jalapenos next time around. These were great with brunch and I plan on having leftovers with some soup later in the week.
