I saw this made on Quick Fix with Robin Miller and it's such a neat idea I'm posting it for you!

Ingredients Nutrition

  • cooking spray
  • 1 (7 ounce) box corn muffin mix (recommended ( Jiffy)
  • 12 cup shredded Mexican blend cheese
  • 1 (7 ounce) jar chopped pimiento
  • 3 tablespoons freshly chopped cilantro leaves
  • 6 poblano peppers, halved lengthwise and seeded


  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees F.
  2. Coat a large baking sheet with cooking spray.
  3. Prepare corn muffin mix according to package directions, adding cheese, pimentos and cilantro when you add other ingredients.
  4. Arrange poblano pepper halves on prepared baking sheet and fill each pepper with an equal amount of corn muffin mix.
  5. Bake 18 to 20 minutes, until a wooden pick inserted in 1 muffin comes out clean. Serve and enjoy!
  6. For Vegetarian do not use Jiffy corn mix. It contains Lard [animal fat].

How clever! These were great as written but I have since tweaked them with taco seasoning and sharp cheddar cheese and served with Taco soup! YUM! I've shared the recipe with a friend who has a catering company and she has gotten rave reviews every time she uses it! Thanks for sharing!

I love them! And we like spicey hot food so I added fresh diced Jalapenos and garlic to the corn muffin mix. I used green and red pepper cups and after baking sliced them into rings and topped with cheese...popped under the broiler and served them at a Superbowl Party....they were the first to go! (Picture is before the cheese and broiler >

AWESOME! Every once in a while, a recipe comes along that just makes you say, WOW! This was one of those for me. DH and I both agreed this was an easy five stars and then some. Easy to make, fantastic presentation, and the peppers added great flavor to the cornbread (and poblanos aren't spicy - even my two-year-old ate this). Leftovers were just as tasty as the first night. I chose not to use pimentos since I don't care for them. I used just three peppers, but this did make the filling overflow slightly; I believe four peppers would be perfect. This was served with another keeper - Chipotle Chicken Skewers With Creamy Cilantro Dipping Sauce; the two combined made for an exceptional meal! I'll never make corn muffins any other way!
